When The Legal Intelligencer asked me to address how Pennsylvania’s judiciary has changed over the years for the paper’s 170th anniversary, I first wondered exactly how old they think I am. More seriously, before referencing the judiciary, let me say a word about The Legal. I cannot speak to the importance of the publication to prior generations, but I know it has provided important service to the bench and bar in our times. I say this even though there have been instances where an article reminds me of what Phillies Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt once said about the local sports media: One experiences the thrill of victory followed by the agony of reading about it the next day.
