On this day in blogging history

Filed in National by on January 24, 2014

Six years ago today, We got our first (and probably still best) guest post from Senator Tom Carper

Five years ago tonight We had a victory party at Deerfield Wines.

Four years ago today, Beau Biden said that he wasn’t going to run for the US Senate.

Three years ago today My three part plan for creating jobs in Delaware by raising taxes on Charlie Copeland (part 3) was one day old.

Two years ago today GOP Clown, John Sigler gave a whack-ass response to Markell’s state of the state address.

Last year on this date SB 3 was on its way to putting the kibosh on the Markell plan to privatize the port of Wilmington – therby proving that “elections matter.”

    I really like the “three years ago today” that wasn’t.

    But surely there is a Donviti post worth remembering from this day in history.

    Nope. Jan 24 2011 was a slow news day. Only three posts. This open thread item got the most comments:

    Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas failed to report his wife’s income from a conservative think tank on financial disclosure forms for at least five years, the watchdog group Common Cause said Friday.

    Between 2003 and 2007, Virginia Thomas, a longtime conservative activist, earned $686,589 from the Heritage Foundation…

    Then Thomans was impeached and removed from the court, right? I don’t recall. You’re the historian. Help me out.

    During the 1790s there was a Supreme Court justice who often held court with nothing on under his robes (people knew because he flashed them) and who routinely threw books at attorneys. He wasn’t impeached.

    And despite all the signs I used to see in Virginia in the early 1960s, neither was Earl Warren (who pulled off the neat posthumous trick of being remembered for school integration rather than Japanese internments).

    Thomas’ wife. I think I found a reference to her being turned into a pillar of salt, but we don’t impeach the Supremes around here.
