What is law?

September 17, 2012

There’s plenty of time to discuss what the “life” in “Life of the Law” is.  But what about the “law”?  For that, nothing might be as helpful as this clip from Curb Your Enthusiasm. It has it all: social norms, misdemeanors, re-appropriating a concept (discrimination) to a new group of people (bald Americans), cops exercising discretion to ignore a clearly written law.  Watch closely.  Where else do you see law here?
