Hard to believe that it's been half a decade since a dynamic and far-seeing tax law professor (okay, who would have thought that there was such a thing?) at the University of Cincinnati took a listserv dedicated to tax professors and turned it into TaxProf Blog, the progenitor of the 50+ blogs that now make up the Law Professor Blog Network. Five years later Paul Caron's blog is still the ne plus ultra (if that's the phrase I'm looking for) of the academic blogging world, and the one that provided the inspiration for our own (modest cough) efforts here. (Left: Leslie Caron. No relation to Paul, but better looking.)
Congrats to Paul for the fifth anniversary of TaxProf, a site that in spite of all odds has managed to make tax law fun and interesting. Here in Texas we'll have a pitcher of margaritas on the porch this evening in your honor. Or maybe two. ¡Salud!
