It's time to celebrate my 1,000th blog post. I have been blogging since 2002. So I have some bragging rights -- among legal academics in any event (who, admittedly, are weak-kneed competitors). So I boastfully report my 5,000,000+ Google hits (see above). But I admit that this number is quite meaningless; some quirk in the way that Google reports hits accounts for it. Which just goes to prove that just because you use numbers doesn't prove that you've proved anything at all.
