My very first post was on September 27th, 2009. At the time, I was about a month into my clerkship in Johnstown in the Western District of Pennsylvania. I had just struck out on securing a Circuit Clerkship for the following year. This was the 2nd time Judge Boggs had declined my application–third time’s the charm, in hindsight, I suppose (I wrote this book chapter about my clerkship travails). Though, at the time, I realized without a Circuit Clerkship I would have to do something different to get where I was going (I still don’t know where that is). So what the hell, I thought. Let me start a blog.
Three years and 4,700 posts later, I’m still here.
Thank you for your readership. I hope to be here for many years to come.
