I suppose it is because I am a deep believer in Enlightenment Values yet. I could not help believing that, even if that idiot Bush had appointed these judges, yet they were judges.

Fools down in the cave would be swayed by klaxons and shrieks and scary cartoons, but those nine up in the sunlight? Never.
Go on over to Pandagon for more. I'm too sad right now.
