Ghost of Tom Joad

John:
While appointing judges might be better, one only need to look at the US Supreme Court to know that the appointment of judges isn't the end all.

Hi, John. My name is K.O. Myers. I'm a law student, and I'm interning with Pennsylvanians For Modern Courts. On behalf of PMC and PMCAction, I just wanted to say thank you for taking some time to talk about Merit Selection. We're really pleased with the response we're getting, and we appreciate your contribution to the conversation.

If you'd like any more information on our proposals, or to join in the debate, please visit our new blog at JudgesOnMerit.org.

Thanks K.O. I'll check it out. I covered our court races last year and got to know both Judge Todd and Judge McCaffery, both fine people who won seats. The amount of money raised and spent on these contests is getting ridiculous however. You can see where the scenario posed by Grisham could happen.

Next year we have more appellate judicial races, three for Superior Court and one for Supreme Court.
