scholarship, news and new ideas in legal history
Blogging of the sort that takes place here is a gift to the reading public who cares about what falls within the orbit of legal history and a little bit else outside that orbit. So, the other work you refer to (e.g., deadlines, travel, and so forth) is the true and necessary stuff, while the blogging is closer to what might be termed a "distraction," of a more contingent nature, indeed, the latter could be said to be utterly dependent on the former. Therefore, there is no need to ask for our indulgence. We'll simply be grateful for whatever eventually comes our away.
