A man of integrity

I figured this was something you should know:

WASHINGTON - A federal judge has resigned from a special court set up to oversee government surveillance, apparently in protest of President Bush's secret authorization of a domestic spying program on people with suspected terrorist ties. U.S. District Judge James Robertson would not comment Wednesday on his resignation, but The Washington Post reported that it stemmed from deep concern that the surveillance program Bush authorized was legally questionable and may have tainted the work of the court.

Wouldn't it be good to see mass resignations? Sadly, that will never happen in today's America. But this man's actions are truly inspiring. Let us hope for more acts of integrity by those in positions of public power and influence.
