Some fun news to pass on today, which is that this blog has been named a LexisNexis top law blog for the third year running. Although I have certainly never made a Shermanesque proclamation against doing so, I have never campaigned for votes in the various top blog competitions out there, which makes recognition of this nature even more satisfying. I write this blog for many reasons, not the least of which is my endless fascination with its subject matter, and I am pleased to see that others share that interest in the topics I write on here. My thanks to LexisNexis for the recognition, and to all of you who wrote in to LexisNexis with comments recommending my blog for this honor.
