In order to have a circus, there has to be an arena and our national news networks provided that. After setting the stage, what fun the commentators had in making fun of Judge Seidlin.
I had been turning it off until the judge caught my attention. Yes, he talked more like a cab driver than a judge, but he has become a judge. Call his weeping "blubbering," but I was sobered by seeing him weep. Perhaps it was one of the most meaningful performances you can find in the whole show. And he even dared to mention God in his court.
Maybe we should all join the judge in doing some weeping over the fact that the circus is a reality we have made.
