A pleasing pro-blog comment from the judiciary

As chronicled here, Howard Bashman has recently been up in arms about "Ninth Circuit Judge Alex Kozinski's take-down of blogs."  Consequently, it was quite pleasing to receive from a reader this report on the thoughts of a higher authority:

I was at a gathering with Justice Sam Alito this afternoon. He spoke briefly about the dearth of useful material in law reviews, and in response, he was asked if legal blogs might be a more helpful secondary source for judges.  He immediately responded that "there's a great sentencing blog" -- but he wasn't sure about the others.

I'm blushing (and thinking that this post with a photo of Justice Alito in fine form got me in good with the new guy).
