I am pleased to have been asked by the editors of the Missouri Law Review to write this short introduction to Associate Dean Jim Devine's final Article: "Curt Flood and a Triumph of the Show Me Spirit."' It provides a wonderful window on some of the things that mattered most to Jim: law, history, sports, and personal character and integrity.
R. Lawrence Dessem, Jim Devine's "Show Me Spirit" Foreward, 77 Mo. L. Rev. 1 (2012)
