Fully half of this site's unique visitors for the month of July have come by in the past 48 hours. Searches for "Kobe" and related terms have also shot up, just as Jeffrey Lewis at SoCalLawBlog said they would. The dust-up over invading the privacy of Kobe's accuser -- the Luke Ford "feminist backlash" thread -- certainly contributes, even though it ranks 18th in hits (lower than it should I suspect, because you don't have to click to read the post). Generating much more traffic has been a Romenesko mention, otherwise by far the #1 topic for visits has been Mickey Kaus.
