On that which is deterministically random

Desperately seeking the right metaphor...

Alice?

Flatland?

Ecomium?

Teumessian fox vs Laelaps?

They all fail me.  I really don't know.  This is all in the realm of the theological more than anything else at this point. Someone will determine the border between private judgment and the law.

Speaking of private judgment, your assessment went up 50 percent. Are you going to appeal?

Aha, so Briem has a pecuniary interest in promoting the reassessment (according to his calculations, at a 50% increase he should be getting a modest tax cut).
