When people ask me why I started blogging, the real answer is that Eric Muller asked me to. Last summer he talked me into a stint of guest-posting at his most interesting site, IsThatLegal?. Since then, Eric has established himself as a primary authority on any number of subjects legal and historical, while never losing his aimiable cool or blunting his rapier wit.
Now he's left the country again--he's in London at last notice, on his way to France for a few weeks. He hasn't abandoned the site to me entirely, thank goodness, but he has turned me loose again.
We'll see how I manage two sites . . . but if it seems lonely here, just come on over.
