I wonder–am I the most liberal guest-poster ever at Volokh’s blog? Must surely be in the top five at least.
Over at South Florida Daily Blog, Rick says it is Closing Time for his local blog aggregator and regional lens.
This is a shame — SFDB was a great asset to the South Florida blogging community of which I am only a very peripheral part. But I’m sure it was an awful lot of work, and he sounds if not burnt out then at least a little toasty.
I’ll miss SFDB. Only consolation is that Rick hung up on a a really successful local blog once before, then come back for a great second act. So can we hope for a third?
The Consumerist linked to and summarized my treadmill saga with a typically pungent headline, Sears Annoys The Crap Out Of Customer For Weeks, Still Doesn’t Deliver Treadmill.

Some time back, someone invented a game the object of which was to write a blog post that used a phrase unique to Google. If I recall, you got the most points for a single word, then for two common words together, then for three in a unique order, and so on. Ironically, I have no recollection of who invented it, or where it appeared, or even what search terms to use to find it, which is why I can’t link to it now. (If it wasn’t Making Light, it probably should have been.)
All this is by preface to today’s Google-unique mix of three words which appear in a Crooks & Liars takedown of a NYT op-ed, Bill Keller has a sad over Social Security, Medicare: “speaking fluent terrarium”.
Yup, that’s a new one alright.
