More Praise for Mike Frisch
Looking at the news summaries for the week that the ABA emails me on Fridays too early, I have noticed that Mike's posts got hat-tipped a lot by the ABA Journal and its blog. That has happened regularly since he started systematically blogging bar discipline here (or they hat-tip a blog that itself traces back to this blog), plus many other sources and news services have picked up on his leads since 2006. Of course we've been happy with all that and are not complaining, and there is nothing wrong with their doing so (to their credit, they hat-tip). I just note that this week they seem to be especially relying on his uncovering issues and filings re ethics. While this is a blog and not a newspaper as such, and we do not purport to be journalists, there is extra value (beyond the many other things he accomplishes on this blog) to getting the journalistic ball rolling by uncovering publicly available (but often obscurely disseminated) state ethics reports. That ball is Mike. Please keep it up--or else at the very least the ABA Journal and its blogs would have fewer pages and pixels. True, I blog here too, and valuable contributions by Jeff and Bill have also been picked up on and fill the blog-iverse, but I'm sure they'd agree with me that it is nothing close to the regular and firm reliance people have come to place upon Mike. Just sayin'. [Alan Childress]

I go to Legal Profession Blog, Legal Ethics Forum, Above the Law, and Evidence Prof Blog every morning. Great way to get material for class, get ideas to update books (evidence and ethics). Really valuable work. Thanks. Also fun places to make wise ass comments.
