What he does best

Just for the record, the sometime Chairman, Mr. Wersal, was simply brillant in his remarks today to the Minnesota Citizens Commission for Preservation of an Impartial Judiciary -- also known as the Quie Commission. The Commission was formed to discuss possible changes to Minnesota's methods of recruiting, selecting, evaluating and retaining state court judges.

Characteristically blunt, and funny, the sometime Chairman left no stone unturned today in his remarks. In fact, he was invited by Governor Quie to return the podium for a second (and longer) question and answer session -- and this second session was as lively as any competing segment on cable.

Clearly, it is what the sometime Chairman does best, and why he is so singular in our time: He speaks truth to power.
