    Nook Police and Law Enforcement Officers Terms

    Rules: *No misusing your power* *If you are found violating the Nook environment, then you will be kicked off the squadron* *If you prove yourself worthy and loyal to the me and your fellow members, then you will be promoted (private>sergent>commander)* *must be very active to join, if I find you have not been on for a few days in a row, I will kick you off (if you give me a notice of why you wont be on for however long and post it in my quarters, i will let you stay) (however, it must be a reasonable excuse)* *you must state your rank before your name (example: Sergent Billybob)*
    IMPORTANT: If you don't know how to terminate a target, read this: a sergent will scout out and find a target and then report it to the commanders quarters. The commander will then summon a group of privates to eliminate the target by posting to the threat to get out and go away. They will also tell the rpers at the reult to ignore the hazard. Once all have cooperated, we head out back to our camp here. Good luck everyone!

    Highly recommended

    I really liked this book. Great history of how the seemingly obscure legal doctrine of anti-trust law had a significant impact on MLB's history. It's also a great reminder that legal and social changes do not always occur immediately, but often are the result of hard-fought, long-range battles. In this case, it was the players union that brought down the reserve clause through union collective bargaining after the legal system had failed the players. However, I wonder whether the book could have used a little more explanation of anti-trust law itself, as well as an explanation of the collective bargaining exception to anti-trust law.
