Monday Open Thread
Here's an open thread, all topics welcome (except Zimmerman who has his own threads.)
If you are looking for something moving to read today, try Senior U.S. District Court Judge Richard Kopf's blog post, "The best gift I ever got from a convicted killer" about sentencing decisions.
Judge Kopf is not going to be pleased that I'm praising his blog again, but now that I've read all the posts, I can't help but point out some that I especially liked. There's several on the sequester cuts to defender services. Today he proposed this solution:
Unless the House Judiciary Committee is run entirely by hypocrites, I think the Committee ought to fire one of its lawyers every time a federal public defender gets the axe as a result of the sequester. Perhaps Mr. Branden Ritchie, Deputy Chief of Staff and Chief Counsel for the House Judiciary Committee, would be a good candidate for the first sequester generated pink slip.
