Bork'd??? Really???

Would you consider the audio edition of The Tempting of America to be better than the print version?

only heard the audio. Have to trust that the Honorable Judge uttered what he said.

What did you like best about this story?

The utterance.

Have you listened to any of Robert H. Bork’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

There are virtually no jurists in our time that subscribe to the original intent of the law they are tasked to apply.Judge Bork stands as one who applies, or does not apply the law as it was written, with great regard for the intent.

What is left to compare is an unwaivering devotion to original intent. What was the law meant to address? Does it address this case?? If not, does it apply???

If I cannot reconcile these things, can I rule outside of my own moral beliefs?

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No, but your inquiry surely tweaked me!

Any additional comments?

Why do you ask???
