In his recent column in the Daily Record, Hugh Hewitt writes about the Kavanaugh nomination fracas as essentially a war. This is most unfortunate for we remember great empires falling when one feuding party cannot accommodate the other and tries to neutralize it — and the empire falls.

The Supreme Court was one institution I looked to for fairness. Perhaps a majority conservative proves so, but it’s a strain on human nature when one side has unchecked power. It’s said that the other side started it. If so, a "plague on both your houses."

Slander is slander and not helpful to see it as war. Those who love this country are higher than that.

I now feel somewhat disenfranchised. The Supreme Court should be above such wrangles. One should be able to say, "I lost all elections, but there’s still the Supreme Court, a true and independent branch of government, as our founders intended."
