When we’re blogging, sometimes we feel like we’re doing legal research or trying to advance the law.

Other times, we feel like we’re just nudging our friends, so they don’t overlook something that might interest them.

This post is of the friendly sort:

Don’t overlook this article in this morning’s Wall Street Journal about the intense lobbying behind the scenes in Wyeth v. Levine. (The reference, near the bottom, to the “Drug and Device Makers Preemption Conference” is seemingly about the ACI conference that the two of us co-chaired in Philadelphia last month. We’re always glad to be involved in this particular debate.)
