By contrast, I will admit that I am blogging this, mid-afternoon, unshowered and unshaved. This is what happens when you practice law in a home office, at least if you are me.

Sam-- You'll have noticed, of course, that Sentelle's argument about "why not call bloggers journalists?" adds nothing to his position against a common law privilege, because the answer to his scenario is Tatel's position -- that whatever privilege there might be doesn't apply to this kind of leak.
