A Blawg Review of Superlatives

Is Blawg Review #199 the best Blawg Review ever? Well, the editor of Blawg Review says it is the best crime Blawg Review ever. He also says it is a perfect example of how to write a Blawg Review. "The next time somebody asks me how to write a great Blawg Review," he writes, "I swear I'm just going to tell 'em where to go." Which is, he hastily adds, to this Blawg Review #199.

While Blawg Review aficionados debate whether this is the best of breed, they might also compare numbers on whether this is the longest. This week's Blawg Review is written by Mark W. Bennett, a Houston criminal defense lawyer and author of the blog Defending People. Bennett remarked on Twitter that this Blawg Review weighs in at 3,900 words -- the equivalent of a fair-sized magazine article. "Too long?" he asks the Twitterers of the world.

The best Blawg Review? The longest Blawg Review? Maybe or maybe not. But you would expect such superlatives to be bandied about for a Blawg Review written by Bennett. After all, he is the winner of the ABA Journal Blawg 100 award for best crime law blog in 2008. And it is a good read.
