There’s been plenty happening at Fault Lines, which I assume that everyone should be totally aware of since you read every post there daily, right? Right?!? You should. And you should subscribe, so you at least get to see every post and realize how much you’re missing. Do it. I don’t ask for much, but do this for me.
So no, you won’t do it just because I asked you to? You are so unappreciative and demanding. If that’s not a good enough reason, how about this: Fault Lines is now the only place on the interwebs, ever in the history of man, where you can read and comment on posts by two (count ’em, two) federal judges. Oh, sure, you know that Senior Nebraska District Judge Richard Kopf writes at Fault Lines. Ho hum, you jaded little suckers say. As if you got to engage with federal judges off the record all the time. But now, double your pleasure, double your fun with…
Judge Kane, who was crossed last week, has graciously offered his thoughts in his inaugural post. Where else do you get to read the ruminations of federal judges, comment on them, engage with them, without being held in contempt? That’s right, nowhere else. No. Where. Else. But Fault Lines.
As if that wasn’t enough to get you off your lazy, good-for-nothing butts, Fault Lines has been incredibly fortunate to have three new writers who are kicking butt. Welcome criminal defense lawyer and President of the Harris County Criminal Lawyers Association, JoAnne Musick; Miami criminal defense and immigration lawyer, Mario Machado; and my editor at SJ and the most brilliant young man in Heidelberg, David Meyer-Lindenberg.
Is that it, you ask? A couple of federal judges, a handful of fabulous writers with centuries of experience covering the gamut of criminal law experience, offering all perspectives no matter how much they confirm your bias or make you cry?
Well yeah. That’s it. And it doesn’t get any better.
