One Year @ First One @ One First

Posted in Non-justiciable by Mike Sacks on December 30, 2010

In a sleepless frenzy one year and twentyish hours ago, I created First One @ One First.  I had no idea what to expect except for the inevitable freezing cold awaiting me a week and a half later on the Supreme Court sidewalk.

What a difference a year makes.  I’ve learned that I could endure those freezing cold mornings, made many new friends, been given some fantastic encouragement from rockstars of the SCOTUS press and bar, became a freelance print reporter, finished law school, and, well:

All this and more has made 2010 a hell of a thrilling year.  But none of it, except for that inevitable freezing cold, would have been possible without the support and feedback of my readers, mentors, family, and the FLOF1@1F.  Thank you for visiting, subscribing, commenting, linking, correcting, and emailing out here in the ether.  And thank you for meeting, speaking, freezing, enduring, debating, and exulting with me out there on the sidewalk.  All of these contacts with you have been my true pleasure.

While my bar studies may keep me from the sidewalk over the next two months, I hope to spend whatever breaks I take providing commentary–both mine and yours, if you are so generous–on arguments and decisions.  Further, I will be happy to post any reports, photos, and videos from those who do attend certain arguments that are of interest to F1@1F.

Once again, my deepest thanks to everyone who has dropped by this year.  Here’s to 2011!

    What a guy! What a blog! All of us year-one blog readers will have the ability to say we were reading Mike Sacks before he was the NYT Court Reporter, before he had his own show on CNN, before he wrote books on the Court translated into 30 languages, and before he was the SCOTUS Chief Justice! To another great year of blogging, adventures, and jurisprudence.

  3. […] F1@1F turned one year old at the end of this past December, I posted a short thank-you for your making F1@1F a deeply satisfying project.  At the time, I hadn’t realized that just […]
