If I were smart...
...I would have written an article like the one I cite-checked last semester. That article was about the whole Ovitz-Eisner drama and cited only four or five cases.
Instead, I chose to write this ambitious policy piece that draws from multiple areas of law, scholarly treatises, statutes and codes, and many, many cases.
Still, you've got to be impressed about the way I knew to use the subjunctive "were" in the title, right?
