Europe seizes control of Blawg Review

America loses control of Blawg ReviewFirst they tried to take our beer.

Now they’ve taken over Blawg Review.

For the past three weeks, Blawg Review, the weekly review of the best in legal blogging, has been hosted by [gasp] foreign bloggers.

First there was the Irish legal blog,, beguiling our hearts with Blawg Review #164, a literary tribute to Bloomsday, the celebration of James Joyce and his masterwork, Ulysses.

Then last week, faster than you could say “freedom fries“, deployed Gallic sophistication and charm to seduce us with Blawg Review #165.

And now, smashing into Blawg Review like a nuclear blast or a particle beam death ray, comes Blawg Review #166, detonated by an anonymous English barrister known only as GeekLawyer. Replete with foul language and links to pornographic images, Blawg Review #166 recalls to mind the words uttered to redbaiting U.S. senator Joseph McCarthy, “Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?”

The reign of terror ends this coming Monday, July 7, when control of Blawg Review is restored to American hands and Jonathan Frieden hosts Blawg Review #167 at E-Commerce Law.

Whether we get to keep our beer, however, remains to be seen.
