The NYT has a problem with the politics of judicial selection - or rather, a problem with a politically selected judiciary period.
Me too. High-five, NYT.
Which reminds me, there's a very interesting article in a recent Bar newsletter about that Bagel-shop owner being elected to the Bench from Manhattan Beach (it was MB, right?) and the response to what was, as far as I know, a totally fair electoral win by a valid candidate for the office. Blame the system, not the bagel baker. I need to blog about that. I make no promises that I'll get to it, but it's been on my mind for awhile . . . .
