Hotly anticipated law school rankings.

The lawprof blog rankings.

(Must try harder....)

Bronze medal again. Good work!

EDH said...

Althouse likes it on top.

Why not post more on Idol?

And I'll start taking out the spam twice a week instead of just once.

wv: "cultedu" I know, I know - like a made-up dog whistle for Crack - but I kid you not, it really is what just came up!

Will the respective blogs follow the links to their competition?

I predict this post will get less than 20 comments.

Triangle Man said...

My predictions of your eventual dominance over Volokh have been disappointingly inaccurate. Maybe I can get a job at East Anglia?

Sarah Palin.

(trying to mess up c3's prediction)

At least you finished in the money. Maybe a few more breast items would help.

Or you let up on guys in shorts.

PS Good one, MadMan.

A rather meaningless category--Reynolds is a news aggregator, provides mostly "hehs". Volokh (which I do like for legal issues does tend to focus on legal issues, and I have found it enlightening for a lay person). Althouse is more a pop culture kind of blogger and makes the cut or law prof blogger (it seems to me) because that is her occupation--I mean read her tag line.

There are host of good law prof blogs that address specific issues and I find them enlightening.

Bottom line for me: the fact that a lawyer--or a law prof--writes them doesnt make a blog comparable.
In short: dumb topic

Or post about Sarah Palin. ;-)

Twelve.

I am predisposed not to like lawyers because they get paid handsomely to intervene in relations between people as jousters who ignore the truth and twist words to win at all cost. I particularly do not like that fact that our legislatures are dominated by lawyers who lay on tons of incomprehensible laws that we peons must obey or risk punishment by a lawyer wearing a black robe. At least we peons get to vote for or against these lawyer-legislators. The bad thing now is that lawyers want to turn all legislating over to the lawyers in black robes who are accountable to no one except, initially, other lawyers. Finally, the once party of the people is now a wholly owned subsidiary of trial lawyers. I don't like Sarah Palin either.

That said, however, it is gratifying that there is a class of persons, not including Sarah Palin, who are paid to think about how are society should govern itself and some of their blogs are my must read every day. Keep up the good work.

You are on the cusp of second place. The guy from Knoxville, not Sarah Palin, is way out front because he is really an aggregator who rarely has much to say. You could track this I'm sure and see that you, my dear, are my first stop. Second for me is the non-lawyer MBA, not Sarah Palin, who is lost amongst the kooks at the Atlantic.

Second place for sure next time and Reynolds should be left out because "Heh" is not exactly a scholarly or lawyerly thing to say.

Fred4Pres said...

Congratulations. You deserve it.

Just don't pull the wool over our eyes. Just kidding on the post link, it is off topic but kind of funny (and you could make a political metaphor about it).

J.R. said...

You're so close to Reynolds!

jgm said...

Apparently not that hotly contested, at least by people with any sense.

In other words: snore.

Julius Ray Hoffman said...

Oh so close so very very close on the traffic!

Maybe you should make a special appeal to the porno-webmasters who frequent your blog...? I'm sure that all of us, working together, would be able to nudge you up over Volokh. We can blind link your site to a thumbnail of some prototypical blonde big-titted pornstar.

Da tits make da visits, you know...
