blawg review 103 swings for the fences

Filed under: Haiku or Senryu,q.s. quickies — David Giacalone @ 10:56 am

infielderG  If we had known that Jonathan Friedan was constructing Blawg Review #103 around a baseball theme, we would have reminded him of f/k/a‘s recent mixture of our beathless punditry with one-breath poems from the new, critically-acclaimed volume Baseball Haiku (prior post)  (for example, herehere, there).  We might have even noted humbly that one of the poets included in the anthology is indeed a legal weblogger.  Having missed that opportunity, your Editor doesn’t want you to miss out on Blawg Review #103 at Jonathan’s E-Commerce Law weblog.

 As The Commmon Scold points out this morning, Jonathan has hit “a grand slam”, with a “very clever” blawg review “structured on key elements of the game.”  Like every weekly edition of Blawg Review, #103 points to some of the best recent posting at law-related weblogs, including:

  1. Overlawyered.com‘s description of one teen’s looney lawsuit.
  2. Eric Goldman‘s lament over Utah’s streak of bad internet legislation (keyword ads this time)
  3.  Law students musing over SuperLawyers at The Legal Scoop.

tiny check Jonathan also listed comic-lawyer Mad Kane’s seasonal poetic wail, Form 1040 Blues.  That reminded us that we not only forgot to post Easter haiku yesterday, but we overlooked our fertile discussion a year ago of the lost Dickens manuscript of An Easter Carol, in the posting “ghosts of tax days past (Scrooge was surely a tax-whiner)”.

Easter morning…

       his first temptation

 

Easter

           from the base of her headstone

 

Easter
  beneath a pure white bonnet
     pure temptation
