Hello, I'm writing to ask you to endorse a moderate supreme court
candidate to replace Justice O'Connor. Personally, I believe it's
reprehensible for anyone to recommend a politically biased judge
(whether liberal or conservative) as doing so effectively negates the
value of the judiciary. I'm not so naive as to believe this isn't or
hasn't always been the case, but I am sufficiently idealistic to believe
that we should at least strive for improvement.

Anyway, I merely ask that rather than you recommend a judge based on how
that judge would likely favor your views, consider whether that is the
right metric, and ask your fans to consider this as well. Thanks!

I'm what you might call a "radical centrist" and these are my letters to bloggers, journalists, and politicians -- left, right, and center -- where I implore them to pull away from the edges and back to the mainstream. Come read if you like, but I'll keep writing either way.
