"I'm late. I'm late. For a very important date. No time to say hello, good bye, I'm late, I'm late, I'm late!" -- The White Rabbit, "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland."
OK, I usually post twice per week. I pretty much always post at least once per week. Now I have let both of those self imposed deadlines pass. Therefore, I'm late.
I have been working on a blog on the District Court ruling on the Arizona Immigration Law. While by no means a record-breaker, it is not exactly a short ruling. Additionally, the logic is a bit convoluted and giving a quality analysis, rather than a reactionary screed, is a bit time consuming.
I also started making notes on the District Court ruling on California Proposition 8. This is an equally complex undertaking with a twist. The proposition defines marriage as being between one man and one woman. The federal judge ruling on the proposition is openly homosexual. From there, the case goes to the 9th Federal Circuit in San Francisco. (Anyone want to lay odds on that one???)
I have been exceptionally busy lately. It is likely that I will have a jury trial in the next couple of weeks. The problem is, I am not sure which of several likely cases will be at the top on the fateful day. Add to that receiving some disappointing information that means I have to, as my favorite T.V Chef Emeril Lagasse would say, kick things up a notch.
So here I am, late with my submission, up to my hindquarters in case work, up to my elbows with other time consuming obligations, and nothing appropriate ready for print. What to do?
I got it! David Lewis always has a great blog. Perhaps I could mimic one of his pieces. I know Dave pretty well. He would probably let me slide. The more honorable thing would be to simply recommend reading his blog this week.
When I figure out whether I am coming or going, I'll have something really great to post. Or at least something that may provoke a chuckle or an argument.
