Semi-obligatory comments on the local Blog Summit

Regarding yesterday's proceedings at Marquette University Law School:

1. Michael Caughill (the silent partner of Elliott Stearns) is a better man than I am for having a kid in his 40s. He won't regret his decision.

2. Funniest comment of the day: Ed Garvey's statement that most of the major newspapers in Milwaukee are "right wing."

3. Most disturbing: Garvey's suggestion that the right wing blogosphere is bought and paid for by rich Republicans. If that's so, I'm getting stiffed.

4. Most condescending: Eugene Kane's assertion that he is the only black male blogger that does not just tell white people what they want to hear. I do not share the Wisconsin right blogosphere's antipathy for Kane, but that's a cheap shot at James Harris who I assume really believes what he writes.

5. Most enterprising blogger: James Wigderson who actually passed out blogging business cards to every attendee before the event started.

6. Most discerning: Christian Schneider, the blogger formerly known as Dennis York, apparently shares my enthusiasm for The Wire. I guess that's unimportant but it is a tease for a post that I'll put it up later today.

7. I have always liked the GOP3 blog at Marquette, but now that I know that 2L Daniel Suhr had the good sense to register for my course on the Wisconsin Supreme Court, I regard it with new respect.

8. There is not much to say about the program. As always, Mike Gousha did a great job. As for the comments, my own sense is that blogosphere remains a bit self-referential and focused on what type of phenomenon it is as opposed to the "MSM." I think the latter concern is totally 2006. Blogs are not going away and they are not going to be co-opted (in the aggregate anyway) by any dark force - be it political parties or what the left sees as this monolithic blob called "corporations." The real question for bloggers is: what are you trying to accomplish (even if it is only your own self-gratification) and how do you propose to do it?

9. Once again the best part of these things was to meet - or reconnect - with people. It is good to be reminded that people with whom you disagree - folks like Plaisted, Mathias and Bullock - are nice and likeable people.

Rick I didn't introduce myself but you quoted some of the funniest items from Ed Garvey that I had jotted down but had not gotten around to posting about....too bad Wifi didn't work or I'd have live blogged it :)

Good catch....

Моя история из жизни: мы как-то с мамой ехали в маршрутке,( мама спец по всем видам мяса на глаз определяет что это), на остановке залазит подвипывший мужик с куском свежака в одноразовом пакете. Едем. Маршрутка резко тормозит,мужик по инерции бежит вперед и пакет рвется ,оттуда выпадет свежак ,дальше мамины слова- " Мужчина,у вас вымя выпало!" я медленно сползаю под сиденье , пассажиры ржут, мужик красный - выбегает на следующей остановке :)))

how to unlock iphone 4
Well, I'm not too sure it's a trojan horse but it's what I think. Anyways, one of my friends messaged me on msn saying, "is this you ? lol" then gave me a link. I clicked on it and it was one of those things where you have to download it. So I did. (I know, I'm very gullible D:) So I went back on msn, the computer was doing tthings automatically by itself. Everytime I tried to message someone, as soon as I start typing, it sends the same thing. "is this you ? lol" then the link. It then starts sending to every single person who's online on my list. I shut down my laptop and I try again. It still keeps doing the same thing on my msn. The trojan horse is in my msn. Should I get rid of this virus by completely deleting my whole windows live messenger and reinstalling it again? I'm trying to get the simplest ways to get rid of this virus, besides restoring my laptop. Also can I have simple explanations with not too big words? I'm not really that intelligent, haha. Thanks again, every answer matters :)
