Blawgletter added set in style to our blawgroll awhile back.  A recent visit reminded us why.

The post, "Recuse Who?", points out that the verb recuse — as a transitive one — requires not only a subject but also an object.  A judge (subject) thus can't simply recuse.  He or she (subject) must recuse himself or herself (object).

Why do judges treat a transitive verb as an intransitive one?

Bonus:  The U.S. Supreme Court held this week that a state court judge violated due process by not recusing (himself).
