Festival of Death

Been reading quite a few entries on blog_of_death lately. not in a morbid way, but lots of interesting people pop up on there who provide food for thought, esp given that death has been much on my mind this past year or so.

Earlier this week I read on there that one Judge Claiborne, described as "the first federal judge to be sent to prison" had shot himself. So I immediately thought, "Man, what a loser! I'm sure glad I didn't clerk for him."

Today I got curious and decided to look up his obituary here, and it appears I was (excuse the expression) DEAD wrong. I misjudged the judge, who seems to have been anything BUT a loser despite getting sent to prison. (And having four wives!)

RIP Judge Claiborne. I wish I'd had a chance to clerk for you.
