Dworkin said--that's just a UCLA thing!)

Has there really been an IRS scandal going on for nearly three years?

Blog Emperor Caron appears to think so, though I'm a bit skeptical about his motives:  since the "Instapundit" blog run by the right-wing Tennessee law professor Glenn Reynolds links to each day's posting about the alleged "scandal," the Blog Emperor has another incentive to keep this "hits" cow going!  But what do readers think?  We'll settle this scientifically:

UPDATE: Prior to the invasion of the Insta-ignorance readers, the normal intelligent readership was 30% in favor of the scandal-mongering, the rest against with about one quarter deeming the Blog Emperor's continued coverage the real scandal.

You know who actually criticizes Donald Trump for being a narcissist in need of constant media attention.  Really.  The "spirit of the age" indeed.

(Thanks to several readers for sending this along.)

Volokh blog to go behind a paywall in six months!

Praise be to Jesus

But, seriously, it seems a surprising decision.  Even I will miss reading a couple of those folks now and then (and not simply for head-shaking amusement!).
