Five Blogs and Five Lawyers

I’ve been tagged in an Internet meme by David Harlow at HealthBlawg. The objective here is to name five non-law blogs that I find interesting, then tag five other lawyers to do the same.

It probably comes as no surprise that many of the non-law blogs I read tend toward the medical, since much of my practice over the last 20 years has dealt with medical malpractice issues.

So here goes:

Kevin, M.D. – Dr. Kevin Pho is king of the medical blogosphere aggegators. He is to medicine what Howard Bashman’s How Appealing is to law;

Pharmalot – All things pharmaceutical, by Ed Silverman;

Capitol Confidential - Political blog of the Albany Times Union, keeping you up to date on event’s in this state’s capitol, which is no small detail where law and medicine intersect;

Respectful Insolence: The miscellaneous ramblings of a surgeon/scientist on medicine,
quackery, science, pseudoscience, history, and pseudohistory (and anything else that interests him);

Musings of a Highly Trained Monkey – You won’t find this emergency room nurse’s blog on the list of too many lawyers, but when she gets on a roll, she can quickly earn the laugh, or the teary eye, depending on the day;

So who is being tagged to come up with five of their own?

  • Quizlaw: Who will probably hate me for this tag;
  • TortDeform: Who will probably find a way to have a good time;
  • Drug and Device Law – Just to see if I can throw them off-topic (all preemption, all the time) for a day;
  • My Shingle: Carolyn Elefant always has something new and interesting;
  • Simple Justice: Scott Greenfield may well be the most prolific writer in the blawgosphere, churning out long posts in the time it takes me to brush my teeth. He claimed he couldn’t do it the other day when tagged by Anne Reed at Deliberations. But I think he’s full of it. So he’s tagged again.
