Local Writer Billy Sothern Finally Started a Blog

Billy Sothern is a criminal defense attorney and writer in New Orleans. He is the author of Down in New Orleans: Reflections from a Drowned City as well as occasional pieces in The Nation.

He just joined the New Orleans blogger community with his new project, Imperfectly Vertical. The blog includes reflections on the humus that inspire his perspective on life in New Orleans both general and personal. His political views tend to roar out of even the most seed-like of subject matter, as if the potential for his whole ideology lay within each kernel.

Rachel Maddow twittered the blog, writing:

My pal Billy Sothern’s newish blog makes me wish I blogged. And that I could write. And that I lived in NOLA.
