Supreme Court Judges as umpires...part two

During the John Roberts confirmation hearing, when he compared the job of a Supreme Court Justice to that of a baseball umpire, I took some time to wade through the comparison.

Now the judge/umpire comparisons are on the loose again due to Sonia Sotomayor's confirmation hearings.

But this time, As They See 'Em author Bruce Weber writes an interesting examination of the comparison in the New York Times.

(By the way, have you read his book yet?)

I still exist.

I've noticed about a half dozen of you who are coming here (mostly from an forum mention of my blog). Welcome!

But there hasn't been any real ref news this summer. And I'm not reffing. Good news is I've lost 10 pounds and am going on daily walks with the baby. Bad news is I'm not running.

We'll see if I pay the piper come November.

I'll be here if there's ref-related news. Feel free to post in comments if I'm missing something.
