Quote of the Day - History is powerful stuff. One day your world is fine. The next day it's knocked for a metaphysical loop. Was Napoleon really at Waterloo? Would that change what I had for breakfast?
The weather was quite a bit different than in New York where Adam Smith's writer, Bruce MacEwen is from.
Bruce and his wife, Janet, met Lisa and me, and the conversation ranged from blogging (of course) to current events and beyond. For me, one of the most interesting parts of our conversation was something Bruce off-handedly asked.
He wanted to know my sources.
The genesis of his question wasn't designed to ask the sources like those of a newspaper reporter. He meant what I read and where I got my information to blog. I obliged, and in turn, I asked Bruce about his. Very interesting, especially since we don't use the same ones. It got me thinking, though.
What an interesting question to pose to other bloggers. Watch this space for a follow-up sometime in the (hopefully) very near future.
Me? That's an easy question to answer. Findlaw, Jurist and LexisOne.
But that's only the half of it.
There's the slip opinions from Law.com, the Daily Journal and the various websites of the Circuit Courts and the California courts.
That's where the work comes in. Findlaw, Lexis and Jurist provide guidelines to the legal news, but the courts are one of the major sources. Reading those advance sheets determines where the law goes, and where MIPTC follows. No secret about sources there.
Bruce's sources? He'll have to tell you on his own.
