Welcome Guest Blogger GST (or you may know him as gst)

Rusty - November 21, 2005

One of the great Bloggernacle commenters gives a self-description:

I have been a reader and sporadic commenter in what we now felicitously call “the bloggernacle” since Nate Oman started the LDS-LAW email discussion group when Nate and I were both first-year law students. I try to avoid making substantive comments, but rather prefer to confine my commentary to points of procedure and etiquette.

I’m the world’s greatest dad (if this coffee mug is to be believed), and a faithful and obedient husband. I play correspondence chess. I sometimes ride my bike to work, in spite of the health benefits. I enjoy reading P.G. Wodehouse, Patrick O’Brian, Alan Furst, and histories of the Soviet Union, among other things. I don’t like discussing politics, but I sometimes do it anyway. I’m a dispassionate conservative. My favorite meal is a tin of smoked oysters and box of Triscuits. My law practice focuses on protecting the interests of virtuous corporations in litigation. I drive an old Honda, use a Mac, and wear fake Dockers. My musical tastes include sea shanties, Elvis Costello, and medieval church music. I lost to Ken Jennings by a very wide margin. I’m an unqualified Mormon.


  1. Wow, you lost to Ken Jennings? I’m impressed by anyone who can even get on Jeopardy. And thank you for owning a Mac.

  3. I thought gst was short for global satellite, but you’re a real down home type of guy!

  4. This is the comments section where everyone says “I’m looking forward to your insightful posts, gst!” and “Kudos to Rusty for landing this giant in Mormon letters!” Don’t leave me hanging, people.

  5. Err, I’m looking forward to your insightful posts!

    But seriously, I am. I also think that all the people who lost to Ken should get another go round. It’s only fair.

  6. So gst, did you actually compete on Jeopordy or you were just keeping track at home and didn’t get as many points as him?

    And yes, kudos to Rusty, that brilliant mind, for landing this giant in Mormon letters.

  7. No, I actually appeared on the show, and had my head handed to me.

  8. gst is awesome, and I can testify to his correspondence chess prowess.

  9. Beating Nate Oman at chess almost made up for the pistol whipping I took at the hand of Ken Jennings.

  10. Hold on. You appeared on Jeopardy, without a mask it’s assumed, but here you are “gst”. There’s some message in there about the reputableness of writing for web logs.

  11. Well, if I could win thousands of dollars, I’d blog unmasked too.

  14. I don’t understand why people are so negative about credit cards. Credit cards are not evil just some people are not mature enough to manage them. When choosing a credit card don’t forget to compare the offers. Simply go to}

  15. I had bad extremely bad credit and no hope of getting any kind of loan. But I learned that I can apply for a secured credit card to rebuild it. I also found a co-signer and applied for a cosigner credit card which is bound to increase my credit rating. The ideas and credit card applications were found at a reliable web site on personal finance called
