Back in early 2009, when my blog was about six months old and my blogging savvy quite raw, I found Bill Jacobson's Legal Insurrection blog. I don't remember how but I'm guessing it was through Stacy McCain's blog which I found by reading American Spectator, but that's a whole 'nother story, as they say.
So I found Legal Insurrection, liked it, and linked it. But not very well:
Legal Insurrection is another great blog I've just discovered, full of quick, newsy bits and links. Love his quote from the Paglia comlumn!My oh-so-breezy-style ruffled Professor Jacobson's feathers:
Quick, newsy bits and links? My dear, why not just drive a stake through my heart? Must you mock me for all the world to see? Why not just say, "I just discovered this loser blogger who doesn't have the time or intellectual strength to lift anything more than links and news tidbits."
....and the blogosphere was on the verge of a serious Rule 4 Flame War.
Somehow, I apologized, Stacy invoked peace...
- Some DirtyBlonde Chick: "Legal Insurrection is the greatest blog I've ever seen. It is full of insightful commentary . . . I laughed! I cried! It was better than 'Cats'! TWO THUMBS UP!"
- Professor William Jacobson enjoys a quiet cigarette afterwards.
Last night, in response to my "I'm so tired" whining, Professor Jacobson wrote:
Let me guess, you worked the fields all day, so you don't have the strength to push down on the keyboard with your bloodied, swollen fingers?He was, of course, mocking himself and his own burnout stories. A few of his readers, whom I now ADORE, took up for me and now....the clarification.
Who am I to argue with a tireless and indefatigable blog goddess...
That whole "blog goddess" thing? That would be me. Thanks for clicking over, LI readers. We're all friends, here.
Where are my cigarettes?
