Special Judge Jon Kerry Blackwood Interview

Nearly four years ago, Judge Jon Kerry Blackwood stepped down from the bench. A published interview in the Memphis Daily News gives us a little insight into the Judge and his views on the judiciary. Here is the link to the article.

Here is a quote from the first question. "..Day-to-day tragedies I have heard during this period have had a profound and dispiriting effect. I have felt myself becoming jaded and frustrated..."

And by the way, yesterday we asked the question if there were any relation to that of Senator John Kerry. In the interview, that was the last question asked and answered. Here is his answer to that question. Realize that he retired at the end of the year, 2004.

Q. What has it been like this year having a name so close to that of presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry?

My Democrat friends want tickets to the inauguration. My Republican friends ignore me.
