Professor Viet Dinh (SOC, OT 1994), who is now back at Georgetown Law, after a stint heading up the DOJ's Office of Legal Policy (OLP), takes second place behind Professor Volokh (his predecessor in SOC's chambers).
At the PATRIOT Act panel, Professor Dinh delivered "impressive and highly substantive" remarks, "sans notes."
(His delivery, however, could use some improvement: he spoke "too quickly," making him "sound vaguely like Elmer Fudd.")
Professor Dinh is "so cute, you just want to take him home with you!"
Get your minds out of the gutter, people! Clearly this correspondent wants to take home Professor Dinh -- who came to this country at age 10, as a refugee fleeing war-torn Vietnam, in an "amazing and awe-inspiring turn of events" -- so he can be taken care of, nurtured, and protected.
If you have any doubt on this score, check out the picture (above right) of the "cuddly" Professor Dinh, which reveals his "sweet, boyishly vulnerable appearance."
