Southwick: "Qualified to Serve"

The Washington Post came out with an editorial this weekend that supports (if only reluctantly) the confirmation of Judge Leslie Southwick to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit.

Andrew Hyman agrees with the conclusion of the editorial, but points out some of its "wacky" reasoning - particularly with regard to the Richmond/racial slur case.
