Readers will please excuse the lack of blogging today. There are busy days I don’t mind, when I am busy doing things I want to do. Then there are busy days when, unfortunately, I am compelled to pay attention to Brett Kimberlin’s dishonest allegations in the Maryland lawsuit Kimberlin v. Walker, et al, in which four co-defendants and myself are being sued for one meellion dollars for telling the truth about Brett Kimberlin. You may ask around among my co-defendants whether I derive any enjoyment from dealing with a plaintiff who was described in 1999 by Slate as “the convicted bomber, habitual liar, and all-around sociopath who claimed to have sold drugs to Dan Quayle.”
Being sued by a lying sociopath is only fun if you have nothing better to do with your time than to refute his lies, and there are many other things I’d rather do. Nevertheless, in honor of George Washington’s birthday, I’ve decided to spend today compiling some research into accessible formats — work which I wish could have been done by someone else, but if you want something done . . .
Anyone interrupting me in this work can expect to get an earful. I have tried to ignore this thing as much as possible, because it makes me angry to think honest law-abiding citizens must condescend to answer the lies of a creature like Brett Kimberlin, who was notorious as a liar before I ever wrote one word about him.

Knowing that Brett Kimberlin’s dishonesty has been so notorious for so long, perhaps you can understand why it is irritating to have to confront his lies, as though it were insufficient refutation to say, “Of course it is untrue — Brett Kimberlin is a liar.”
So I am compelled to keep working at this today, and ask your patience at the lack of blogging. But there is this bit of news: Nominations for the 2014 Blog Bash Awards are out, and my reporting on the Kaitlyn Hunt case is nominated.
And now, back to the Siberian salt mines . . .
