Back in January, in what now seems like another world since lockdown brings to mind Goethe on the battle of Valmy in 1792 (“Today a new world begins”), I lamented (off-blog) the death of Bob Shane, the last of the original Kingston Trio.

So as I scanned the website roster of USTC Judges and saw all the slots were filled, I remembered the Hawes-Steiner lament that Bob and his buddies sang so long ago.

Judge Mark V (“Quirky”) Holmes isn’t coming off senior status. There’s no room in the inn at the Glasshouse. I’d love to be proven wrong, but I doubt I am.

My comments on appointments to the Federal Judiciary, regrettably but necessarily political, are expressed elsewhere.
