Another Volokh Conspiracy Commenter Makes the Big Time:

California Lawyer cites Cornellian:

Last summer David B. Lat, a former federal prosecutor who writes Above the Law (www.abovethelaw.com), openly made fun of the lyrics to a song that law firm Nixon Peabody commissioned to celebrate its inclusion in Fortune magazine's list of the best companies to work for. Nixon Peabody asked Lat to take the posted song down from his blog, claiming copyright violation. The dispute landed in the New York Times and provided fodder for countless other blogs. "... boy am I glad I don't work at Nixon Peabody," commented someone called Cornellian at the popular Volokh Conspiracy blog (www.volokh.com). "That song makes it seem like a place run by Dilbert's pointy-haired boss."

Thanks to Nick Mikulicich for the pointer.

OK, now it's time to do a newspaper article on the blogospheric reaction to a blog comment being mentioned in a newspaper article on the blogospheric reaction to the New York Times coverage of a blog post. I want this comment to be quoted first.

But did Cornellian speak with apparent authority when he made that comment post?

I also got a media mention for a comment I made on a post over at professorbainbridge.com about The DaVinci Code. I think once I get a third mention they'll give me my very own blog.

Cornellian,
I think once I get a third mention they'll give me my very own blog.
Or at least a set of steak knives.
