Eden Hill Journal

Comments, dreams, stories, and rantings from a middle-aged native of Maine living on a shoestring and a prayer in the woods of Maine. My portion of the family farm is to be known as Eden Hill Farm just because I want to call it that and because that's the closest thing to the truth that I could come up with. If you enjoy what I write, email me or make a comment. If you enjoy Eden Hill, come visit.

Elena Kagan

Jewish Supreme Court nominee...

whose hero, according to this article in U.S. News & World Report dated yesterday, was activist Israel Supreme Court judge Aharon Barak.

I find this article interesting in that it clarifies for me the problem with "progressive" activist judges. I have always thought a judge had a responsibility to the Constitution and to the original spirit of the law, but this clearly shows that is not the case.
