"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Nice to know the Governer of Maryland, apparently, considers 'diversity' more important that professional qualifications when appointing judges. Here he pats himself on the back as he appoints an Asian-American and openly lesbian. The writer digs up the info that the Governer decided was merely incidental to their appropriateness and they both sound more than qualified but it is just the idea of making this kind of statement: "The strength of Maryland is its diversity, and with these two appointments we are celebrating that diversity and breaking down barriers," Glendening said in a prepared statement. "I am confident Ms. Hong and Ms. Weinstein will make Maryland a more fair, just and inclusive (place) to live."

Why is up to a judge to make a place more inclusive?

He also claims to be breaking down barriers. The only barrier should be and Constitutionally is lack of qualifications.
