Meet Michigan's Worst State Supreme Court Justice
http://www.dailykos.com/storyonly/2009/2/16/152529/577/...

(Judge Diane Hathaway defeated Chief Justice Cliff Taylor) YEAH!

Bad as he was, Taylor wasn't the worst member of a court that a University of Chicago study recently ranked as the nation's worst. That distinction belongs to Justice Robert Young.

Who is Justice Young? He's the former chief counsel to the Auto Club of Michigan. When it isn't sending out the occasional Triptik, the Auto Club is an insurance company. Lansing trial attorney David Mittleman points out that Young has ruled in favor of insurance companies 80 percent of the time since he joined the court in 1999.



Daily Kos has a great blog article that folks in Michigan should read. Hope the link works.

1. Young is our next target.
We need to take him out when he comes up for re-election.

3. Hey, you
:hi:

Hope things are going okay for you. Did you hear Nancy has her own show now? For now, you can stream it at novamradio.com.

4. Oh my gosh! No, I hadn't heard!
I will try to catch her at the addy you listed when I can--will bookmark. So glad she's got this opportunity. Bravo!

Things are working pretty well here in the great white north. Got a new choclate shoppe coming to town (http://www.mrchocolate.com / ) and I've been invited to run the show. Very exciting! I've got a long history in the confection business and it's not nearly as nasty/dirty as politics.

The fates have smiled upon me. Hope it's all good in your world too my dear. :hi:

5. That sounds great. Good luck!
Nancy filled in for Randi when she left, totally figuring she'd be back, but that's not happening.
