My Favorite Bloggers

Jon Rowe is guest blogging at Sandefur’s place this week, which is great because I only have to go to one place to find both of their posts for a while. Already, Jon has a great post up about Harry Jaffa and his views of homosexuality, and Timothy has a follow-up to it extending one…

Happy Festivus to Jason

Jason Kuznicki is off to the Carolinas to spend the holidays with his in-laws and leaves us with a great post offering a history of Festivus that no true Seinfeld fan would need. But more than that, he also includes a link to this absolutely precious anti-gay rant, which has to be seen to be…

Thanks to Walter Olson

Thanks to Walter Olson of the great weblog Overlawyered for his mention of my blog yesterday. I cringe a bit when I see myself listed as a “legal analyst”, since I don’t have a law degree; at minimum, the word “amateur” should be attached to it. But I appreciate the recognition from someone who really…

Explore the Rest of the Neighborhood

I’ve been busy today so I haven’t had time to write anything, so you all should be out exploring this little corner of the blog neighborhood. Specifically, you should be stopping in at Jason Kuznicki’s place to see this post where he fisks the latest ridiculous idea from the religious wrong. And when you’re done…

Mr. O’Brien has a Blog

Ah, Robert O’Brien is mad as hell and he’s not gonna take it anymore. My pet troll, as PZ has dubbed him, has started his own blog, from where he will no doubt launch unintentionally amusing attacks on me. Here’s my favorite part of his post addressed to me. After pasting the text of his…

Two Must-Read Articles

The first is from Andrew Sullivan, an article on how the red state/blue state division is largely one of those who talk the talk and those who walk the walk. The red states talk about morality and “family values”, but the blue states tend to actually put those values into practice far more often: Take…

The Wit and Wisdom of Brian Leiter

Maybe I just have a soft spot for cranky elitists (being one myself, of course), but I think this passage, in response to a column by George Will on the problems in academia, is really funny and brilliantly written: But let us translate: what Mr. Will really means is that universities are places where the…

These Are a Few of my Favorite Blogs

I’ve been rather lax lately about reading other blogs and linking to articles that my readers might enjoy. To my delight, lots of other people have continued to write thoughtful stuff even while I wasn’t there to read it (perhaps this suggests an answer to that “if a tree falls in the forest” question). So…

How Did I Miss This Blog?

Every once in a while I come across a blog and think, “How on earth did I not know about this one before now?” Reason and Liberty is a perfect example. The blog’s owner, Steve Sanders, is a 3rd year law student at the University of Michigan, my home state, and he is, like me,…

The Wonder of Google Ads

Okay, this made me laugh. The irony of a google ad for a gay matchmaker service showing up on Clayton Cramer’s blog is overwhelming. Cramer is, as Jon Rowe puts it, a tad bit obsessed with gays:
