As the third branch of government, the politics of the judiciary are often underappreciated. When laws ar poorly written, it is often up to judges to sort it out. Other times, judges invent laws they wish were on the books. They risk their lives just by hearing cases. In many ways judges can be viewed as being heroic for their bravery. In others, they are to be pittied for sinking into the muck and allowing it to stick to them. Many judges work hard, never being paid a fraction of what the celebrity lawyers appearing before them earn. Some succum to the temptations, and become bribed.
This is a place to record the soaring heights of judges and the judiciary. It is also a place to record the depths of politics that the judiciary gets immersed in.
