Five years ago today “Fuzzy Slippers” became an author at Legal Insurrection. 2012 was a very good year, as we also recently celebrated 5 year anniversaries for A.F. Branco, Mike LaChance, and Leslie Eastman.

But that is not the start of the Fuzzy story. Starting in early 2010, Fuzzy had her own blog...

“Jim Treacher,” born Sean Medlock, has ended his blogging at The Daily Caller. It is, for me, a turning of a blogosphere page.

I don’t know if Sean was a first mover in the early days of the blogosphere, but he was there when I started in 2008. When he moved to the...

By some miracle (and I truly believe that’s what it is), we’re still high and dry and abundantly thankful to be so. My husband and I are heartbroken for our home town and frustrated that there is nothing we can do to help those in need right now.

Blogging from Houston where we’ve received 25 inches of rain these last 48 hours. Meteorologists are predicting we’ll receive another 15-25 inches in the next three days, and that’s before Harvey meanders back into the gulf, swings back around and hits us once more as a parting gift.

My brother-in-law’s family evacuated from the coast yesterday to dryer ground inland.

As these things go, no one is entirely sure what to expect, but wisdom always suggests we prepare for the...
