Long time readers of B&B will recognize this as home truth: I'm a huge fan of the legal and non-legal writing of Justice William W. Bedsworth of the California Court of Appeal, Fourth District, Division Three. Beds' monthly column has had the honor spot atop the blawgroll here since B&B was just a little train case, even though—alas!— it's not weblog. I've dreamed of a blogging Beds since back in Spring '02, when a Daily Journal article I wrote about weblogs included a "Note to California appellate Justices Bedsworth and Gilbert" that their respective columns, "A Criminal Waste Of Space" and "Under Submission," were "eminently bloggable." Here's Justice Bedsworth, for example, on the Taco Bell-Chiat/Day flap:
But if this verdict is upheld... and Taco Bell decides that for $30.2 million, they oughta get more mileage out of Dinky... and he starts showing up on my screen again... then somebody in the Sixth Circuit is gonna have some 'splaining to do.
Now it appears my dream of a Bedsworth Blawg may come true! Craig Williams (featured as yesterday's newcomer) reports not only that Justice Bedsworth's column is being posted as an adjunct to Craig's weblog, but that Beds is all set up to post to that page—which is a weblog—as often as he likes. Craig is going to bring his powers of gentle persuasion to bear, and to say I wish him every success is putting it mildly. Ok, I'll stop enthusing now and just keep my fingers crossed. If you're excited about this prospect too, please be sure to leave a comment so Craig can show the good Justice some of the ready audience that's out here waiting.
