Will the Judicial System ever Catch UP?   Penfield Jackson example

by R. F. Mariano

The "Honorable" Fed Judge Thomas Penfield Jackson may be a great guy and a fine Jurist... but as a guru of modern day technology and all its rampart and ramifications, he fails miserably.  But... He is not alone.  Have you any idea of how many Attorneys, Paralegals, Law Clerks and Judges from most every jurisdiction have no idea what they are either doing or talking about when it comes to computing, computers and the world of high technology?  Hang on Bunky, the numbers are staggering!  Last count it was at approximately 82% of all in decision making positions of the legal community are in the dark when it comes to high technology.  Hoping to ease the technology ignorance gap ... Jackson called in a Collegiate Buddy, Arthur Lessig to help with narrowing the gap.  Unfortunately, for the world and MS, Lessig was a PC user alright but a MAC PC user!  Not an Intel, MS PC user.  Lessig was, as far as the i386 architecture was concerned, equally in the dark.  Yet incredibly, Jackson used this "professional's" opinions and advice in forming his landmark decision in the MS Anti-Trust Matter.  

One can only wonder when the Federal Judicial System will be of, for and by the People.  It is not that way today and this particular "version" of the DOJ was obviously rife with egomaniacal individuals bent on making names for themselves.  The Reno DOJ and its Administration was the very bloodiest and most inept this country has ever had to endure.  Janet Reno is as much of a failure as Attorney General as she was as the State Attorney for Florida's Dade County ..Richard Gerstein's shadow had more smarts than she hoped to..  There is great speculation that she was appointed to the position of Attorney General to appease two political factions in this country.. the ultra feminists and the lesbian factions. Of course this would soon prove to be at the expense of true justice and the people of this country. There its been said.  Just as Hoover was a closet homosexual -- Reno has her own agenda.  Frankly Mr. and Mrs. America, I could care less what his or her closet bedroom preferences are, but when it comes to matters directly effecting me and mine...  Such as allowing Federal Law Enforcement Agencies to run wild and shoot 'em up from one end the country to the other... then run elaborate cover-ups, re-instate wacky agents when things cool down and either lose or produce evidence as needed... then it becomes abundantly clear the entire scheme of things needs total and complete re-examination.  Our Country's Forefathers must be spinning in their graves.  

Once the National Elections are done and the new Administration is in place, the first head to roll should and was Reno's!  Along with her, each of her department heads must go.  Folks, these Department Heads are supposed to have brains, be intelligent and capable of making conscientious moral decisions.  Yet each and every one of them allowed the atrocities and injustices to continue at will for eight years. From Ruby Ridge to Waco and a liberal sprinkling in between like the highly questionable Vince Foster matter... Reno's DOJ trampled this country's tradition of truth, justice and the American way.  Janet Reno will go down in the annals of history as having guided the bloodiest, most ruthless DOJ administration in the history of this country.  Thank God, we have a new administration.
