Wishing all Legal Insurrection readers a very Happy New Year, hopefully filled with whatever it is that is important to you.

In past years I’ve tried to remember and give thanks for the people I’ve met through blogging, and some of the people I have yet to meet, like a Cornell student...

As the Christmas season concludes, and I look back on 2016, I have one thought:

It’s good that Halloween is my favorite holiday, as I seem to like scary things. It sure has come in handy when covering this year’s cornucopia of news drama.

I was delighted to see my post, Hillary Clinton’s...

It’s that time of year again! The time when I get to sift through a year’s worth of blog posts and decide which ones I like best.

Looking back through my posts from 2016, my favorite posts are (predominately) more personal in nature. As regular readers know — I gained a...

The Second Coming by William Butler Yeats starts with words (highlighted) I think of very often:

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,

I’m baaaaack! Sort of. Kind of. Partially, anyway.

I’m covered in spit up, am pretty sure there’s more dry shampoo than hair on my head, am not entirely sure when I last showered, have dark circles not even the heaviest of concealers could conquer, our home is a certifiable disaster area, and...

We reported the other day that UTK was “investigating” Prof. Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit over the tweet suggesting that drivers surrounded by the violent racist mobs of rioters on Charlotee highways “run...

Okay, so we’re doing this.

Kemberlee’s baby daughter is expected on or around October 4. I’ve seen the most recent ultrasound image. That baby is ready to bust out of that place.

Kemberlee and her husband have consented to us running a naming contest. Which is good, because we...
