Spirit of One Blog Rises at Another

Since its launch in 2004, the blog Crime & Federalism has commented on criminal law and civil rights with a healthy dose of skepticism, cynicism and attitude. We were sorry in September when one of the blog's two authors, Mike Cernovich, announced that the other, Norm Pattis, had grown so busy with his Connecticut law practice that he would discontinue blogging. Soon after, Cernovich wrote that he would be starting a new blog and would post to Crime & Federalism only sporadically, if at all.

Now Pattis is back with a new blog called, appropriately, Norm Pattis. In what will most likely be his final post at his former blog, he describes the move as "same addiction, new drug," and says he will write about not just the law, but also more general interests. In his new blog's welcome message, Pattis explains that after giving up Crime & Federalism, he found that "quitting isn't that simple. Since then, I've had the itch to comment on one thing or another, but did not want to resume at my old haunt." Why? Because, Pattis writes, "It seemed unfair to raise myself from the dead."
