Appointed For Life

In his always entertaining and honest blog, Hercules and the Umpire, U.S. District Judge Richard Kopf humorously suggests that his fellow jurists ought to open sessions by playing the tune Appointed for Life. Not a bad idea, and I would enjoy seeing judges walk out to the song, like fighters approaching the ring.

The song is a gentle poke at federal judges who far too often become far too full of themselves. Kopf's post is a wry aside about such silliness and reminds me to again heartily recommend his blog. It's not that we always share the same perspectives, but I appreciate RGK's candor, good faith, and lack of pretension. For anybody who wants to hear a federal judge speak frankly and engage with his readers, put him in your feed aggregator for a few weeks, and flip through some old posts while you're there.
