Clearly I have no friends in the highest reaches of the American Bar Association, an organization to which I have given years of effort and cold cash in the form of dues, travel expenses, and time away from work. And yet, hard as it may be for you--my dedicated readers--to accept, once again I have been snubbed. For reasons that can only relate to an ongoing conspiracy to silence and discredit me, I have been left off the Blawg 100!

Sure, I am less snarky than David Lat of Above the Law and not nearly as prolific as Denise Howell of Bag & Baggage, Lawgarithms, and Between Lawyers. Nor am I as high-brow as Mr. Becker's and Judge Posner's The Becker-Posner Blog. But, so what? What do those guys know about the tariff classification of control knobs for appliances? Nothing, I tell you; and that is not an uncomplicated topic.

I will soldier on. No doubt, like van Gogh or Pauly Shore, my true genius will only be recognized after my death.
