The drawing she supplies on her profile page is of an attractive Sex-in-the-City-type diva . . . and one who purports to be starstruck by the nerdy world of the federal judiciary. How exciting that someone--anyone--is even interested in this lonely corner of the world in the same way that groupies are into rock stars!
I guess the sad news for federal judges is that there is not a single woman anywhere in the United States that is startruck by them.
First, what will the consequences for David Lat be? He’s a federal prosecutor, and the word will quickly spread about his authorship of the blog. Will his supervisors look kindly on his blogging?
Federal prosecutors have no sense of humor. Poor David is toast.
Anonymity allows people to escape accountability for their words, but this comes at a cost -- the loss of authorship credit under one's real name. Lat wanted to have the praise and attention his female alter ego A3G was getting. He wanted to have his labor and toil on the blog associated with his name.
Sadly, David will only get five minutes of fame and that will be the end of it. No one is interested in guys, no matter how clever they are. On the other hand, if he was really a woman, and he wrote about getting paid for sex, then he'd be able to sell a book for $300,000.
