Whenever inspiration wanes, I turn to Groucho. Here are lines from "Duck Soup":
I often struggle to balance the demands of blogging and other personal priorities. But I see that it's too late to give up now. And I have just learned that Google Analytics allows me to monitor "visits," a rough gauge of potential reader interest.
Ambassador Trentino: I am willing to do anything to prevent this war.
Rufus T. Firefly: It's too late. I've already paid a month's rent on the battlefield.
So I have decided to continue, but I need your help. First, please feel welcome to suggest improvements. (If you prefer privacy, you may e-mail me at mginsborg at gmail.com.) Second, I am eager to engage the entire community of legal scholars and attorneys who seek a venue for expressing their views. One reader calls this blog a "one-stop" shop. I aim to make it just that. Please feel welcome to invite all interested members of the legal community to contact me about guest blogging. I want all legal views to have a platform here.
I will resume updates as early as tomorrow. In the meantime, have a look at law professor John Culhane's latest post on the "DOMA brief" that the Justice Department filed earlier this week in the Smelt case.
