Gold . . . Pure Gold

I post a lot about legal writing, usually with reference to briefs or judicial opinions.  But what about blogs?

If you saw my Simply the Best Law Blogs post, you know that Decision of the Day is among those I listed.  Yes, the analysis is good, the posts are extraordinarily timely, and the Ninth Circuit gets its fair share of coverage . . . but I also keep reading it because of writing like this (my emphasis):

This Ninth Circuit criminal appeal is a cautionary tale about why you should do background checks on employees before you hire them – especially the white collar ones. The defendant was hired as a computer technician. Shortly after the defendant started work, his employer learned that when the defendant had said that he had no criminal record, what he really meant was that he had three prior convictions.
