Yeah, I know. You saw this jump to the top and you were hoping for a decision. Well, that ain't it. But, there has been much consternation over the fact that Judge Meyerscough dismissed Moore and the fact that she was an Obama appointee, that I got to wondering about Judge Stiehl, the presiding judge in Shepard. This has probably been covered someplace already and if it has, I'll remove this post. But, I found out that Judge Stiehl was born in 1925, (so he's 87) in Belleville. He served in the Navy during WW II and the Korean conflict. He was in private practice from 1952 to 1986. He served as Asst. States' Attorney at Belleville and Asst. Attorney General of Illinois. He was nominated by Pres. Ronald Reagan in 1986 and confirmed by the Senate within a month. He served as Chief Judge from 1992 - 1993.
So, he's a Reagan appointee and has military background. Don't know if that makes him more or less sympathetic to our cause, but it's certainly different than the background of Judge Meyerscough.
Just thought I'd pass that along.

The Roman Empire fell due to a large, corrupt government, overspending, an overextended military, insecure borders, and the illegal immigration of Goths, barbarians (anyone who was not educated), and religious fanatics. Sound familiar?
