I might be here. I might be there. I might be hiding. You never know.


I know you’ve been wondering why I haven’t been posting much.  I’m sure it’s been keeping you up at night.  I’ll bet that some of you have been so worried that the stress is making it hard for you to function.  It’s horrible, I know.

To you, I offer my sincerest apologies.

It’s not that I haven’t been posting.  To be honest, I have a secret to tell.  I’ve been cheating on you.

It’s not your fault.  You’re great.  Seriously. You’re the best and I wouldn’t ever want you to change.  It’s just that I’ve been contributing to another web page and I didn’t think you were ready to hear about it.

Its name is Excessive Bail.  Excessive Bail is a fairly new deal.  It’s actually a collaboration among several criminal defense attorneys- so it’s not just my stuff.  It’s got some fun stuff, some serious stuff, and some stuff about Walmart hot dogs.  Over there, you can even comment and tell me how nuts I am.

But I still want to be friends with you.  So, I’ll still write stuff here- just not as often.  I’ll use this space for local stuff… like my hatred for certain local police departments or when we make the big-time news.  I’ll use Excessive Bail for the more general types of stuff… like making fun of new lawyers, or how listening to a pimp can help you in traffic court.

I’m sorry I had to break it to you like this.  Please don’t hate me.
