Judge Jones on Time's list of "100 Most Influential People"

Sorry for the brief time away, but the entire staff was busy at the membership conference in State College on Friday and Saturday.

Today's Patriot News has a nice editorial commending Judge John E. Jones III on being included in Time magazine's "100 World's Most Influential People." (For those who don't know, Judge Jones was the judge in the intelligent design challenge.) Go Judge Jones!

I still highly respect and admire Judge Jones. I remember a quote from him after being accused of being an "activist" judge for not following the wishes of the religious groups that were responsible for helping get him elected into his position.

He simply stated that he was following the law, and that giving into the demands of a group of people that went against what he knows is the law would have meant he was an activist judge.

It's so refreshing to see someone who can separate party and personal beliefs from his rulings.

We need more judges like Judge Jones.
