It's not easy to keep a blog going over the long haul.
And so it's time once again to prune the blog list a bit. I don't do this lightly. A couple of months off (say, Infamy or Praise) won't get me to delete, nor will a declaration of retirement (Simple Justice). And there are special cases. Capital Defense Weekly is simply a wonderful resource. And Blonde Justice is, well, Blonde Justice.
Sad farewells, then, to Jamie Spencer and his Austin Criminal Defense Lawyer blog and to Robert Smith, Bidish Sarma, and Sophie Cull of A Criminal Enterprise. If either starts up again with anything like regularity, they'll be back.
In the meantime, a couple of additions.
Brand new, but already exciting, the Wrongful Convictions Blog by Mark Godsey of the University of Cincinnati College of Law, the Center for the Global Study of Wrongful Conviction, and the Ohio Innocence Project, along with a supporting team.
And I've been remiss for too long in not linking to the remarkable compendium of death-penalty related news and commentary, Steve Hall's Stand Down Texas Project.
