My blogiversary!

It has been one year since I started this blog.  I had been thinking about blogging since I first read about blogs back around 2000, but I wasn’t sure if I would have enough items to blog about, especially since I have to be cautious about not revealing any client confidences and I didn’t want this to be forum to gripe about what happens in court.  I also didn’t intend this blog to be a celebration of drunk driving, but instead provide a reasoned look at our DUI laws and how they work in reality.

At the same time, I also wanted to keep this blog interesting and not be just a bunch of keywords.

So after one year, 274 blog posts and over 10,000 page views, I have to thank:

  • the worlds of politics, Hollywood, and professional and collegiate sports for constantly giving me new celebrity DUIs to blog about;
  • and police officers from around the nation, who keep falsifying cases while dash cameras or surveillance tapes are recording;
  • and the police unions, that keep trying to keep it a felony for a citizen to video record police officers who are working and are outside in public view;
  • and the drunk drivers, who have provided me with some very memorable DUI arrests to write about.

Hopefully, everyone reading this will continue to enjoy the blog and have a safe and happy year.


Listen to me talk about DUIs

I was interviewed by Bert Martinez for the internet radio show “Money for Lunch” today, Friday, August 17, 2012.  To hear the episode, you can click on the link here.  The sound file will probably stay up for a few days and then disappear.  I was on about a half hour into the show and I talked for about 10 minutes.
