This ‘umble site seems to be experiencing a DDOS attack. Lord knows why, or from whom; might be quite random, though I prefer to think it’s Carmen Ortiz, that awful prosecutor who hounded Aaron Swartz to death. I have no real reason to believe that, apart from wishful thinking, and the slender fact that the first intimations of the attack came from IP addresses in Cambridge, Mass.
More importantly, I note that Obie has not fired Ortiz yet, in spite of the universal execration deservedly poured upon her head after Aaron’s death. I said at the time that she’s not an ‘outlier’ — that she’s executing policy that her bosses are right behind, all the way up, from the AG to the president and on to the people who own and manipulate the president like the pathetic marionette he is.
I claim now that events have vindicated me. The dog did not bark, and the message is clear.
More guessing games: Who is the distinguished jurist shown above? A faithful reader tagged ole Strom right away, in an earlier post.
