So, President Bush nominated a supreme court judge. It was noted he will probably be naming another before he leaves office. Thus, observers suggest his domestic legacy will be that he changed the "fabric of America" to a more conservative weave. The conservatives celebrate while the liberals morn, the move to the right.

I'm quite sure I'm alone in thinking we should forget moving left or right  and all move back from the brink of self-destruction. The way I see it, in real life there are no sides. (see poem) So a society that requires judges to dispense justice to the various sides is somewhat removed from real life.

How far removed is indicated by the number of sides and the resulting conflict in our existence. Clearly, the evidence confirms we are guilty of living a life that is critically distant from the ideal and thus perilously close to self-destruction. All the while, we fight over which side a judge should be on.
