    The people are quite willing to deal with it. There is no point in being timid about this issue. Let Representative Kate Harper fix the bill so the people can vote on it in November. Then see if it passes.

    The electorate should be able to vote on whether or not Judges should have these near lifetime sinecures on the bench rather than have the Legislature hand them out like patronage.

    The voters would love to have a Constitutional Amendment put up for vote on this issue.
