Judge Amy Coney Barrett is a fine choice for the Supreme Court thus far.
Besides her academic brilliance, I appreciated her statements about filling the late Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat. In her acceptance speech after President Trump’s nomination, she referred to her respect for the “long and deep friendship” between Justices Scalia and Ginsburg who she said, “disagreed fiercely in print without rancor in person…These two great Americans demonstrated that arguments even about matters of great consequence need not destroy affection. In both my personal and professional relationships, I strive to meet those standards.”
I hope Judge Barrett continues to strive, as much as I hope you and I will do the same. During a volatile election season, varying views with family and friends can be tense but should never turn to hate (or name calling).
