Avoiding An Unfortunate Death

Frankly, the title of this post is a little bit of milquetoast, considering the heart of the topic I want to mention.  I picked the title as a kind of play on words, but, again, the heart of this post is anything but play.

This blog hasn’t gotten my full attention.  It is something of the poor stepchild to my older, more-established law blog.  Probable Cause: The Legal Blog with the Really Low Standard of Review is my real baby; it’s where I pour my heart and soul.  In fact, I’d never have set up this second blog if it weren’t for the fact that I got lucky and managed to buy FresnoCriminalDefense.com when another local attorney apparently let registration on the name lapse.
