In addition to the wonderful writing and fascinating substance of the blog, I like the masthead of The Volokh Conspiracy. It reads, “Mostly law professors, blogging about whatever we want since 2002.” That got me thinking. (I know. Don’t say it.)
What if a bunch of senior and retired federal district judges started a blog about the federal trial courts entitled, say, “The aging (and self-styled) aristocrats of the Article III trial courtroom.” The masthead might read: “Probably pompous, but certainly old, federal trial judges (sometimes) blogging about stuff they know something about.”
Alas, there is no chance. As trial judges, we are too used to being the monarch. But, then again, it could be wicked fun.
