Yeah, Kumar, MoveOn is for others. Thanks for the note on the petition, Chelse.
Watched a lotta PBS evening politics, including our local show, Horizon. It's funny, Jax was so surprised but I knew she was thinking about it. She was rumored to be resigning for just this reason (her husband's health) long before Chief Justice Renquist's cancer diagnosis came to light.
I hope the good news here is that her resignation indicates that Renquist's health is improving.
Anyway, she's a cool lady. She's well covered here as a news and human interest topic (obviously, she's from Arizona). She was offered to Reagan's Republicans as a cookie-cutter conservative, and to the rest of us as a woman.
But she showed us that she's not just one or the other. She's a true independent, and she looked at each case independent of the previous or next. Her way of deciphering the law was dignified, one of conscience, and one that respected anyone that decision might touch.
She's going to co-instruct a course at the U of A next winter, and I hope once her house is settled, however that comes to be, she'll continue to teach us what she so gracefully disseminated via example for 24 years on the bench, and a good chunk of her adulthood as a public official in some capacity.
