Pennsylvania - Throwback to Athens?

I am not sure how well-documented my aversion to democracy is, but I will set the record straight right now. I dislike democracy. The idea that political truth is subservient to the brains of millions of mouth-breathing morons pulling levers is disgusting. Democracy has been bad since the time of Socrates, and we have somehow managed to make the tyranny of the majority work even worse mischief than the execution of that intellectual giant.

My anger has been renewed by my recently finding that justices of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court are elected, not appointed. Given my hatred of democracy, people in general, and being cordial, I think it is safe to say that I am unelectable. So, that shoots that career idea down, huh?

However, I still like Bill Buckley's quote about the Boston phone book.

IMHO, the Pennsylvania state courts are second only to Utah when it comes to lousy.

I know you're a lawyer, Jim, so you probably have insight I don't. Care to explain?

Even worse than Mass.?
