  • Should Supreme Court Justices Be Elected?

    To the Editor:

    The Supreme Court is the only branch of government that is not an elected body. Should it be? Should justice be political – ideological? Are court appointments disenfranchising voters? Would elections affect the quality of the court and the decisions rendered?  Does political posturing of the Court affect decisions made? Should the Court have an odd or even number of members?
