I Was Wrong



After I posted Seth Barrett Tillman, This Is What Is Wrong With The American Judiciary, The New Reform Club (Mar. 16, 2017, 4:23 AM), http://tinyurl.com/z4q9f8v, my wife asked: “Do you think any federal judges would agree with your post?” I unhesitatingly answered: “No, not one.”

Twelve hours after my post went live, I received an unsolicited e-mail from an Article III judge.* He wrote: “You’re right. See [citation to an article by that judge]”.

So in regard to what I had told my wife that morning, I was wrong. And, perhaps, the implication is that there is more hope for the future than I had previously thought. But the real puzzle is figuring out where this judge came across my post? Was it New Reform Club? Chicago Boyz? Or Josh Blackman’s Blog

One counts as an eccentric. You need a dozen or so to count it as a tendency.
