Flashback: Chad Gets The Blog 'N Sync

I'm often asked why the name of this blog is "Fraters Libertas." Here's the story as I understand it.

Nearly a decade ago, Chad & his brother JB were active in the fledgeling blogosphere. One issue they had to resolve was what to name the blog. The brothers were big fans of Justin Timberlake, and his band 'N Sync had just released the following video for their 2000 hit "Bye Bye Bye."

At about the fifteen second mark of the video, you can see the Latin word "Libertas" painted on the front of the boys stage. Our intrepid bloggers added the Latin word for brothers and now you know the rest of the story.
