Your Good Deed for the Day

I hereby direct you to support Lawfare. As I have written before, it is one of the best and most informative sites out there, and certainly the best at discussing the intersection between law and national security policy. Indeed, Lawfare is so good, that it is routinely the subject of Denial of Service Attacks and attacks of more hawkish varieties1 launched at the site and its authors; my philosophy is that if you are scaring the benighted, you are definitely doing something right, and Lawfare certainly qualifies on that score. So, give to Lawfare! It will be exciting to see how the site evolves, and I…

Blogging Has Been Sparse, Recently . . .

And you have no doubt noticed as much, gentle readers. The reason for the sparseness of blog posts is that I am moving. As everyone knows, the moving process is an utter nightmare is Hell on Earth is a fate worse than Death itself can be a bit trying and time consuming, which means that less time is left for blogging. I do hope to get a few posts in each day, but things may be slow for about a week or so. Meanwhile, wish me luck as I try not to stab myself in the heart try to avoid…

Closing the Book (I Hope) on Aesthetic Complaints

Following up on this post, I am writing to confirm what readers should be able to see with their own two eyes; the font is now black, and there is a new color for hyperlinks. Hopefully, readers will be pleased. Let me know what you think in comments.

Administrivia (Comment Section Edition)

I have decided to close all comment threads that are more than two weeks old. I frankly would have preferred to have kept them open indefinitely, because one never knows what smart comment may pop up at any particular time, but the spam has gotten to be ridiculous.

Public Service Announcement

This blog is best viewed by using Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and/or possibly Opera; I am not one hundred percent sure that Opera is a good browser with which to view this blog, but I am willing to bet that it does the job. For that matter, if you use Netscape from the 1990s, a child’s rendering of the website via crayon, or a stone tablet, you should be able to view the blog relatively well. You might want to avoid Internet Explorer, however. Just a thought.

A Comment on Comments

For whatever reason, the “Comments” link is not showing up at the bottom of posts–I have alerted Squarespace, my hosting company about this–but if you wish to comment on a post, you can click on the title, and Disqus should still work. So, comments are still allowed.

Lawfare Is an Example of the Best of the Blogosphere, and it Deserves Your Support

I am very pleased to note the success of Lawfare in attracting readers and in shaping the law/national security debate, and not just because I guest-blogged at Lawfare one time, or because Jack Goldsmith once had nice things to say in passing about an article I wrote. Rather, I am pleased by Lawfare’s success because I think that the site does a wonderful job of discussing the intersection of law and national security. Its writers are terrific at both reporting law/national security news and at writing what they think about the latest developments in the field. That’s no mean feat. Lawfare’s writers…

I have put up a PayPal donation button to the side, right below the picture of the blog icon/mascot.
