A New Blog From Legal Times

Even vegetarians will enjoy The BLT, because the bacon is in the substance not the lard. That is my prediction, at least, given that The BLT is the newly launched blog of Legal Times, the Washington, D.C., legal newspaper published by ALM, the parent company of this blog's host, Why a blog, and why now? Legal Times editor-in-chief James Oliphant says he is not merely following journalist convention.

"The real reason is the opportunity this medium affords us, one that despite the wretched excess of blogs polluting the net remains very real, particularly in the areas this publication watches."

As for what to expect on the blog, Oliphant says:

"Here, we hope to translate the smaller bits of information that comes across our transom in a given week into something interesting and entertaining (famous last words) on a daily basis.  And if possible, perhaps break a little news, too."

The BLT comes stacked with contributions from Legal Times' full staff of editors and reporters. All I ask of them is, Hold the mayo.
