When I was drafting my post about the attack on two French Jews by a boycott movement gang, I saw on the Dashboard that we had reached our 15,000th published post. That would be Aleister’s post, Clinton War Room Targets “Cash” Author.
Why do we do it?
We do it for the Honor and the Glory.
For the Honor of things like having a student get arrested for reading a Legal Insurrection blog post out loud during a protest. (The charges later were dropped, because this is still America, F-yeah!)
Seriously, how many other blogs, magazines or newspapers can say that someone was arrested for reading their writing out loud?
There have been many other honors, mostly meeting or interacting with the readers, authors, bloggers and others I have met along the way.
More than once I’ve crossed the cyber-real world divide, and will again when I meet the families of Edward Joffe and Leon Kanner during my upcoming trip to Israel. (My wife thinks we should organize a Legal Insurrection trip to Israel next year – what do you think?)
Victories are few and far between for us in Obama’s America, so when we get a victory, we like to make the most of it.
(Long time readers knew this was coming)
(warning, may cause seizures)
So, let’s run a contest.
Who can guess how many of the 15,000 posts were written by me?
The commenter to get closest to the pin by the end of the day Monday gets, um, gets, Honor and Glory, ’cause we ain’t got no money to give out.
