Fuzzy has been a devoted part of the website almost since inception.
You know her as Fuzzy Slippers. We know her as …
You didn’t really think I would tell you, did you?
Fuzzy was waaay ahead of the privacy curve, recognizing the threat from digital media and big tech long before almost anyone. She’s still private, so private that the only image we have of her is the drawing we use as her author photo. I used to think she was overboard on the privacy, but no more — she was visionary.
For some background on Fuzzy’s start here, and prior blogosphere life, see Fuzzy Slippers 5th Anniversary at Legal Insurrection.
One of the things that sets Fuzzy apart is that she started as a commenter at Legal Insurrection, similar to Andrew Branca. Fuzzy came here to weigh in on our Scott Brown versus Martha Coakley Senate race coverage. Her first comment, according to our archive, was January 1, 2010, regarding social media used by the candidates. At that point, Legal Insurrection was barely a year old.
So if you want to measure longevity for the total time at Legal Insurrection, Fuzzy is only behind me. It’s approaching 13 years “at” Legal Insurrection for Fuzzy, but “only” 10 years as an author. Fuzzy has been a vital part of Legal Insurrection for so long, it’s hard to remember a time when she was not here.
Fuzzy’s first post at Legal Insurrection was on October 6, 2012, Launching the Election Day Empty Chair Countdown, hence this 10th Anniversary as an author. I miss those early days of the blogosphere.
Fuzzy has had over 2100 posts since October 2012, and now is our Weekend Editor. She is our go-to author for racism-hoax posts, media bias, gender identity insanity, Democrat hypocrisy and perfidy, and the breakdown of law and order.
If I had a favorite post of hers, it’s her write up on 10 Years Later: The Brutal Murders of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom. Bring tissues if you read it. She’s followed up on the trials of the perps.
Fuzzy also has had 5235 comments. She’s a regular in and has control of our comment section, which means in many ways she has established a connection with readers unparalleled among our authors. There is intense reader loyalty to her, as reflected in this email we received a few days ago after Hurricane Ian hit Florida:
I was just wondering if anyone has heard from Fuzzy since the hurricane hit. I know she is in Florida, but I don’t know what part and I’m hoping she’s contacted someone letting them know she is safe.
Thanks for your time. A longtime reader.
Fuzzy was just fine, thank you. But I have an issue here. How come no one ever emails to ask if I AM OKAY when Rhode Island or upstate NY gets hit with bad weather? You seem to love her more than you love me.
That’s okay. Fuzzy has been an integral part of the website almost since inception, something I have to admit I haven’t acknowledged enough. So I’m acknowledging it now.DONATE
