I don’t know if it’s ever happened before, but somehow I was lucky enough to get mentioned prominently not just once today, but twice, on the fantastic Ace of Spades HQ blog.

First mention came in the Sunday morning gun thread, because of my daily coverage of the Zimmerman trial:

Next came mention in the Sunday morning book thread, because of the release of my book, “The Law of Self Defense, 2nd Edition”:
