  • Anonymous Commenters

    I’ve changed my settings to disallow comments from anonymous commenters. If you want to comment, you’ll have to have at least a pseudonym.

    Two of my older readers have protested that the white text on black background is hard to read. I’m thinking about changing my layout to something a little less badass and more user-friendly. Opinions?

  • New York is Definitely Different

    In Texas, a “car” is a car. In New York, apparently, a “car” is what a fancy-pants criminal-defense lawyer calls a white stretch limo, which is what Scott Greenfield sent to pick me up from the airport when he found out that I was coming in to do some work on a cocaine conspiracy case […]

  • The Uncashed Check

  • My Train of Thought: Banishment . . . Transportation . . . Outlawry . . .
