Legal Insurrection has landed, you are free to move about the blog


Just wanted to congratulate you on your new website.

Hey folks…we do have one issue with the comment form and user registration. Please hang in there while we sort that out. Should not be too long.

Ok, everything should be ship-shape. If you can, post a comment so we know it is working.

Looking good!

Ok–Where’s the champagne ?

Seems to be a success, Good luck and Good Blogging. I’ll be stopping by often. JgT out.

I wish I had known you while we were neighbors – I left central NY about 5 years ago for the warmer and red-statier climes of Tennessee. Happy to get to know you through your writings, and amazed that you maintain your dignity and sanity whilst living among the lefty loons who populate Ithaca!

Looks great! Happy LI 2.0

Won’t let me post :p

oorah firsties! Besides support and coredump helpers

Yup, seems to working AOK.   BTW, I like what you did with the place.

Joan Of Argghh | June 18, 2011 at 2:00 pm

Nice place ya got here. Comfy. Modern. None of those horrible karate-chop throw pillows. Just overstuffed soft leather chairs and Spartan surroundings.

Smaller blog list without mine, but I get that. Don’t blame ya!

yep, just landed!

(high fives Professor)


Okay, it finally came through. Five minutes is a long wait in the internet age for a password. 🙂

johnnybravo | June 18, 2011 at 2:03 pm

Awesome! Where’s the bar?

btw Professor, got your quirky joke after my first attempt to post *__* …. or was that wee communication from your ‘support’ guy/gal …. anyway, I got told:

“slow down, you are posting to quickly” , so I had to back up and try again


(or was it, you are ‘typing’ too quickly, or you are ‘commenting’ too quickly? … I forget the actual wording)

:)) 🙂 :> :>>

(just checking whether any of these work *__*)

Welcome home, Professor!

Wow – looks great! Congratulations on the new site!

Very nice! Welcome back 🙂

Yay! Welcome to your new digs!

VotingFemale | June 18, 2011 at 2:21 pm

Yoooo Hooo! Welcome to WordPress, Professor! Glad you retained much of your motif. Now you can get “PingBacks.”


And the RSS feed is working correctly, too. ^.^

Aw, no “subscribe to comments” feature? *cry*

Nice new digs, and I’m finally able to comment for the first time in a goon’s age. So now I’ve got “poster’s block,” and can’t think of a thing to say. Just keep up the good work, Professor.

Very nice! I should have brought a housewarming gift.

Minorcan Maven | June 18, 2011 at 2:27 pm

Fantastic!! Congratulatins!!

Taxpayer1234 | June 18, 2011 at 2:39 pm

Congrats, Professor! Looking forward to more sanity and humor!

Love it!!!
Hope you serve Dr. Pepper on this flight!

Looks great! Congratulations!!

Wow, snazzy new digs Will. I really like the color scheme better than the old one. Good luck with it.

Congratulations! I am really impressed! And thanks for having me be a part of Legal Insurrection at your blog links. It’s an honor!

Lovely what you’ve done with the place. See you each morning!

Welcome back! Nice new place ya got here! Congratulations!

Looking GOOD!

Okay Prof….enough lollygagging… time to get back to posting. Your Public Awaits!! 🙂

pyromancer76 | June 18, 2011 at 3:06 pm

Nice new digs; and am able to comment. Looking forward to your usual incisive and intelligent commentary. Hope the format works better for you.

Love your new decorator…..

Terrific. Dirty Martini, please.

Pretty snazzy place you get here, Doc.

Cowboy Curtis | June 18, 2011 at 3:41 pm

I hereby denounce this new format as racist.

VotingFemale | June 18, 2011 at 3:46 pm

@ Ed burns, ya might wanna set up the LI logo so it shows up in the browser address. just a helpful heads-up.

I put up an announcement for your grand opening at my blog, Professor 😉

Looks great!

Very nice new website, lovely clear design. Congratulations Professor, and kudos to your web designer.

alan markus | June 18, 2011 at 4:04 pm

Finished the registration – as a commenter I guess I’m “good to go” too.

Congratulations, it looks great! I wonder if my WordPress profile pic will show up here? I can’t figure out how to do it in my LI profile dashboard. Guess I’ll find out when I hit submit. 🙂

You have landed in Rockford, Illinois. Thanks for flying Legal Insurrection Air. We know you have a choice of carriers when flying, and we thank you! Be nice to your flight attendants, they are packing more heat than the Air Marshal sitting behind you…

Congratulations! I just recently discovered your website and love your writing. Wishing you great success on your new venture.

TheLastBrainLeft | June 18, 2011 at 4:34 pm

Nice new digs, but what’s this love affair with the color orange?

I’m here. You’re here too? The blog looks good. Congrats!

Reporting for duty to new base (hopefully to better effect than Lt. Kerry (ret.).

How do I set my avatar? Can’t find it. Thanks.

Can we get to edit our remarks? What about likes? Can we get to pat each other on the butts? I forgot the ! at the end of my name, guess I’ll have to cancel my account and fix that.

LukeHandCool | June 18, 2011 at 4:58 pm

Oh, dude … check it out … it’s got a pool out back! And a treehouse!

And you kept the orange furniture! Love what you did with it.

LukeHandCool (who remembers the excitement as a child of exploring a new house)

Nice job, Sir. Fantastic look, very sharp. Look forward to many more years of visiting.

Welcome back, Professor!

HollywoodNeoCon | June 18, 2011 at 5:23 pm

Congrats on the new digs, Professor! Long time lurker, first time commenter.

Where’s the cake?

Hurrah! Glad to see the new domain and site, Prof! One question, there doesn’t seem to be the ability in the WP accounts we create to upload a photo or avatar to be displayed with our comments. Is there something I’m not doing correctly?

William A. Jacobson | June 18, 2011 at 5:41 pm

Thanks to all for the good wishes. This has been a long time coming.

@Mares – not sure, don’t really understand the commenting software too well myself, so maybe others can make suggestions.

@Foxfier – I’ll look into that.

@TheLastBrainLeft – well, it’s hard to break an old habit.

Welcome Back Professor…….Nice new look…….Good Luck!!

Hoping this is working straight (since I can’t get the gray word “Comment” to go away).

In my browser, the gadget just below the coffee cup is complaining about not being configured correctly.

I’d also like the ability to subscribe to comments (one of the good points about Blogspot, IMO).

Anon Y. Mous | June 18, 2011 at 5:59 pm

Love the new look!

I just registered and got the password and all the other rigaremole so will visit often and comment occasionally This looks really good and good luck professor.

Cool…site looks good.

@Mares from looking at source it looks like the avatar image is being pulled from Gravatar. The link is through your username and e-mail. If I have it right then mine will show up and if not….

yippee, the registration went through! Congrats, Prof!

Site looks good.

An HTML check.

Is anybody out there?

Hi Darleen. Testing for a link to your latest.

Beware Big Lemonade

Great looking site. Kudo’s. Impressed.

Query: Can’t find an avatar insertion thingamajig on the profile page, except I see others already have theirs on board? Was it something I said?

Second query: This is “WordPress”, right? How come I have seven or more separate “WordPress” log-ins at various sites, all with the same user name, and none of them match-up to the others? By that I mean the avatars don’t interconnect and they each accept different passwords. But with identical user names. That seems weird. Again, was it something I said?

Wow, it’s really nice here. I wish you continued success. Your LI site was destiny waiting to happen for you. You have come so far, so fast. I see great things in store. I better hit the donation button again soon. Remember me as one of the early supporters when you get to Washington.

Here is to new beginnings. Cheers!

GenetheHappy | June 18, 2011 at 9:04 pm

Now I can comment without using my wife’s google account

jeannebodine | June 18, 2011 at 10:06 pm

Very jazzy! I like it a lot. I’ll try to improve my behavior so that it is befitting of the classy new digs. At least for a week or so.

I’m sure I will grow to love it. But I must say I am missing the yellow background, and the posts being over on the right side instead of the left! What can I say? I hate change and am comforted by familiarity!

Hot dog! These are some classy new digs. I like. Keep up the good work, Professor!

Today’s Washington Post “Free for All” is unusually interesting. Readers castigate The Post for its “Palin Witch Hunt”.

Also, someone rightly admonished a Post writer for employing the vulgar phrase “shot their wad” in an article.

Good God.

And regarding the obama administration’s suit to prevent Boeing from opening its already-paid-for 787 manufacturing plant in South Carolina, without affecting union workers in Washington State IN ANY WAY WHATSOEVER:

(This story, at The Washington Post’s website, was published yesterday (17 June). Interesting that—-as of earlier today—-zero comments have been made. Usually inside-the-beltway liberals are all over political stories like this. One is moved to wonder if even liberals realize the stupidity and arrogance of this lawsuit, “just to help out unions”. What the NLRB is saying—-and this is explicit, not implicit—-is that companies, whose workforces are wholly or partially unionized, cannot open new facilities except in locations that are unionized. Think about that. This is what the obama administration is all about.)

November 2012 cannot come early enough for me. Period.

Oh, and by the way, Bill, congratulations on the new website.



Great New site, Professor! I found your blog in Feb and have been hooked ever since.
I just took the new site for a “test drive” and LOVE IT!
Great to have you and LI back befor Monday!
Looking forward to future visits to your wonderful site.

Much easier to login and post. Thank you sir!
I have a great feeling about the new digs.

Very clean and strong, but I found the color of your old page very restful on the eyes after everyone else’s white. I will miss that. And I liked the content on the right rather than the left. Other than that . . . congrats. I read you every day.

The new site looks terrific! I am looking forward to your posts.

William I love it, thanks for the effort in creating this new site.

Professor, love the new site. Please thank your gracious wife for sharing you with us. My morning routine: coffee, shower, Drudge, LI. I’d be lost without it.

“Is anybody out there?” More people than you know. I am pleased to join.

OK, now I am in. How do I add an avatar?

theduchessofkitty | June 19, 2011 at 2:35 am

Nice digs, Professor! Zesty, too. (As in the orange color.)

Congrats! Looks good. *s*

dingoatemebaby | June 19, 2011 at 9:10 am

Welcome back!

[…] Jacobson has come over from the dark side (blogger) and has his own domain and a WordPress installation. […]

Fantastic place! Looking forward to great things!

Gotta love AOL; it took six hours for my password to come through! The site looks wonderful!

Present, and accounted for, Professor. Well done on the new website! Carry on…

Good job, Professor. I’m at the age where I don’t give a rat’s ass what the website looks like. You just keep doing what you’re doing, sir. Your website is in my top three daily, plus the daily mail and newsfeed. Gotcha covered, brother. Continued good luck with the site.
