New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - November 13, 1987, New Braunfels, Texas DAVE KRAMER and Publisher WANDA Acting Managing Editor Page4A New Texas November Other views Here is a sampling of editorial opinion from around the state Ginsburg scars teflon President stung by the impending rejection of his then Supreme Court Robert promised to find a replace ment the Senate liberals would dislike just as much as he found a replacement who had trouble with the conser vative not the Douglas the new revealed that he has smoked The president found himself in the position of defending someone who admits us ing an illegal and Nancy Reagan was in the position of hav ing to give a forced smile about a nominee who didnt take her pro grams advice Just Say It was too and on Ginsburg withdrew his name from It is a pretty sad commentary on the competence of the president and his administra The Teflon is wearing off this president and his staff and it is not a pretty It can only be hoped that now that the Ginsburg nomina tion has gone the way of the Bork at least Ginsburg avoided the full embarrassment of Senate rejection that the White House will make an actual effort at looking into the background of the next nominee before sending his name over to the Austin AmericanStatesman Reform Texas judiciary The Texas Supreme Court has upheld a lower court ruling on the internationally infamous case of Texaco And it did so without hearing oral arguments from The Texas Supreme Court would have done itself and the state a favor had it at least listened to the the astonishing size of the punitive damages awarded Pennzoil were seemingly out of And the fact that both sides have made large contributions to judges including those presently sitting on the Supreme makes the Texas judicial system look like it is for Maybe the Texas courts have pro perly applied New York But with judges vacuuming up money from the lawyers appearing before no one can be It is time for Texans to think long and hard about the quality of their judiciary and the wisdom of forcing their judges to run for office like common If Texas is to offer a standard of judicial ex a new system of selecting judges must be Dallas Morning News Performances justify hoopla With all the attention given to the opening of Houstons new Wortham Theater it seemed that the reality could not conceivably

of a campaign trip to Michigan that one in four auto assembly line workers is a drug Robertson subsequently said that he wasnt singling out auto workers for criticism but was instead address ing the

scowl as 1 took the next bar Not one word about he said 1 warn Im capable of What in the world do you You know exactly what Im talking you lowlife 1 know what your intentions Your hope to provoke I thought we might talk about Sun days football Its obvious that you want to gloat about the defeat of Douglas that A tragic Its preposterous that a mans his lifes should be judged by a few moments of youthful 1 you go to a somebody passes you a are you going to be a party See 1 knew you would try to provoke You are taking the words right out of my mouth But you are Not at I mean what 1 say A few puffs ol marijuana in years past shouldnt have dis qualified Just about everyone from his generation tried If we applied the potsmoking standard to all Americans younger than few could practice law or hold public of write columns or preach from the pulpit For that unwashed it was the illegal substance of But if that is which it why was Ginsburg deprived of the opportunity of be ing judged on the basis of his intellect and his grasp of the Constitution Why did you liberal jackals drag him down for having engaged in a leisure time activity that was common among his peers The answer to that is Grump It wasnt the liberals who did it You being so admirably faithful to your conformist views you did him in What are you talking about1 The true conservatives such as Kd got him nominated because hes a true not a wishywashy imitation And as our great Presi dent he is a true advocate o law and order but it was the liberals who defended the impulsiveness of inhaling a bit of brainaddling smoke Joe the liberal was one of the first to speak in Ginsburgs behalf And Biden even used his own words in saying the pot issue was irrelevant Hah Biden would say that Hes just a shallow youth He probably smoked the foul weed at one time or another And hes always cuddling up to the youth vote That may be so But consider that some members of the not a favorite conser vative also defended Ginsburg So did many other liberal politicians and organiza They were just trying to make Ginsburg look bad by giving him their support You mean it was a liberal plot1 Of 1 could see it developing The mo ment the marijuana business came all the liberals leaped to his defense They knew that would make him look bad to the conservatives very devious of them By defending they were trying to destroy him the liberal plot was obvious to everyone with any But it was the conservatives who pulled the rug out rum under his who pressured him to withdraw but that was only after the liUral press exposed his use ol marijuana But the press couldntg have exposed his man juana use if he hadnt actually usevl it 1 mean Ginsburg did admit it Some ol his former Har vard law school pals even said he brought the sluff to parties why couldnt the kept its mouths shut about it1 Because if thev hadnt revealed it the conser valives wouldnt have known that the were un wittingly nominating someone for the Supreme Court who used to smoke pot SVho cares if he did It was a trivial matter thats what JCHBiden said Biden is an idiot But If Biden is an idnt why did the lunser vatlves pressure Ginsburg to withdraw Because were against people smoking pot Dont you listen to anything Nano sas Our motto is Say no In that you should te pleased that his potsmoking was since what he did was illegal and wrong Dont be silly As we agreed earlier it was no big deal because almost everybody was doing it in those days Did you Of course not 1 never smoked that kind ol trash in my life It is illegal and immoral What kind of liberal weakling do you think I am 1 apologue Would you like another martini Yes And make it a with two olives Im gelling hungry HvraldZeitung Published Thursday and Friday afternoons by New Braunfels 707
