Reminder: Blogging is Hard Work

You remember that really promising blog by a bunch of SCOTUS clerks?  Well, not what it was called--but you do remember that it existed, I'm sure.  It was well-written, interesting, and influential.  Maybe it is too early to write its obit.  But it is hard not to notice that it just doesn't get updated enough to be a serious voice anymore.  This serves as a reminder that even really smart, well-qualified people do not a good blog make.  Blogging is hard work, even if the addiction carries most of us through most of the time.

For me too blogging became a chore,
And at times even a bore,
Until I resolved to do in rhyme,
And say, "It's for fun
And not a job to be done",
Wink, smile, chuckle and have a good time.

I'd like to add what a great blog this is. As a conservative/libertarian, I don't often agree with what I see. But I do enjoy it. I also appreciate that you enable comments, rather than cowering like some other law-professor bloggers.

No one at the site will answer the question whether the former clerks who served as sources for the VF article breached their oaths of confidentiality. I didn't ask them to name names. All I asked (twice!) was whether there was a breach. The (conspiracy of) silence is telling.

The website you link to is actually the "Supreme Court Extra" part of their blog. The main blog can be found at http://thinkprogress.org/ and seems to be updated on an almost daily basis.

Actually, that blog seems to have transformed itself into the Former Supreme Court Clerk Ethics blog, with the penultimate post forming a 60+ comment ongoing thread about what former clerks should be allowed to disclose:
