After the tenures of former US Attorneys General Ashcroft and Gonzalez, your superior correspondents feel we're not alone in feeling a bit shaky about jurisprudence in the U.S. of A. (particularly when it comes to civil liberties). Our misgivings have, however, been somewhat mitigated this week when it was announced that senators Reed and Whitehouse have chosen wisely and recommended Superior Court Justice O. Rogeriee Thompson for a seat on the First US Circuit Court of Appeals.
Rogeriee is the whole package: a brilliant and thoughtful jurist with an enlightened conscience and a true commitment to civil liberties. In fact, as far as the FBI and others who will be vetting the Justice's resume, there may be only one glaring blemish: they could find out that she is a friend of your superior correspondents. We're happy for Rogeriee, but even happier for our country, which will benefit from Justice Thompson's wisdom.
