Law Blogging Without a Safety Net

Yesterday was not a stellar day for the law blog community. Here is what some of the most popular law blogs on the Internet were discussing: Volokh Conspiracy had a post that compared Ted Kennedy to Joseph McCarthy, Concurring Opinions had a post that had no less than 20 references to Jennifer Aniston nude, Professor Bainbridge had a post about Senator Joseph Biden cruising for chicks at Princeton, TaxProf Blog had a post about a flaming mouse, Conglomerate had a post about Coca-Cola with sugar, and How Appealing had a post on "scutinizing the virtue of girls" (yes, he is talking about that). By comparison, blogs like Althouse that long ago jumped the shark looked positively serious yesterday.
I know that law bloggers are posting without a safety net, but perhaps just a little more discipline might be in order? It is after all a new medium that we are trying to establish. I don't want to sound like the Jiminy Cricket of law blogs, but these are all law blogs that I greatly enjoy, and law professors that I greatly respect.
As Larry Solum has admonished: "Blog in haste, regret at leisure."

Perhaps a look in the mirror might be in order. You forgot to add the Blawg Rankings at Opinio Juris to your list of non-substantive posts.

Don't forget -- We had a post critiquing Henry Mansfield's Straussian distortion of constitutional separation of powers over at Balkinization. No wonder, I suppose, that we're losing the competition for traffic (although David Luban's piece is terrific -- honest).

Perhaps I ought to add a post pondering what Judge Alito thinks about Jennifer Aniston (and vice versa).

The best place to study Chinese online is in China. However, we understand that it isn't always possible to move here to study Chinese language. The next best thing is to study with our experienced teachers in a virtual classroom. Online students enjoy the same excellent way of mandarin Chinese online lessons and custom designed courseware that we provide for our face to face clients.
