Over at Notes from Rumbly Cottage, the Answer Lady has thoughtfully provided a photo of a brick wall – for those who found themselves at her site in their search for such an image. This oddity sent me to my own site stats to see what might cause Google and Bing to direct people here.
Turns out it’s Scalia. Justice Antonin Scalia of the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS for those of us ‘in the know’). Those search engines scoop me right up with the other droppings, even though I’ve no memory of using a Scalia picture, but Google knows what Google knows, so we may assume that in fact I did. We may also assume that I had a darn good reason!
That long-forgotten posting may even have featured the photo above. I just found it via Google – at yet another blog – which may have actually gotten it here – via a Google search – and maybe I posted it the first time after finding it on another blog via Google . . . I think we need a word for this disturbing and all too common process.
So allow me to take the self-serving lesson and throw some feed to my site stats. If one Justice is good, nine are better.
