    Whatever happened to the Saturday Night Card Game?

    Whatever happened to the Saturday Night Card Game?

    Not dead, just resting.

    The Saturday Night Card Game has a long and storied history at Legal Insurrection.

    It started on October 8, 2009, in reaction to a post by Oliver Willis (blogging in his individual, not — ahem — Media Matters capacity), wherein he said:

    Saturday Night Card Game First Post

    That was the first of over 200 Saturday Night Card Game posts — almost every Saturday Night for over 5 years.

    There’s no “best of” list, but here are just a few that I remember:

    I’ll stop there, there are just too many.

    The last post we did was way, way back on September 20, 2014: Civil rights activists: Django Unchained actress should apologize for playing race card. (See Featured Image.)

    Since then, quiet.

    I’m suffering from a localized form of the dreaded blogger burnout — localized to dealing with the endless idiotic and malicious uses of race either as a political weapon or just because.

    I’m taking a temporary break from the Saturday Night Card Game. For my sanity.

    I’ve missed it, and wondered why.

    This is a very trying, weary-ridden time; rest up, recover – we need you!! 🙂

    Professor, while I’ve enjoyed your card game, feel free to take some time off to refresh your batteries.

    For those still with hankering, check out CDR Salamander’s Diversity Thursday posts every week. More general, as he covers issues besides race, but to the point.
