THE SPHINX—-LOCAL JUDGES AND OTHER MISCREANTS

The Editor:   Is there enough news about judges for an entire article, LL ?

West Of The Pecos Cat:  You bet, I won’t mention the ones where I live, they might burn down my cat-house.   Here, when they get busted the Judicial Committee bans them from holding any Judicial Office.   The crooks then run for the State Legislature, and are elected.  Here is one who used to think he was a Texas Ranger.

I kind of miss the old days, now you only have a few places like Chicago and San Francisco  that are mostly lawless.  Here are a couple of old-time judges.

When Judge Parker hung you, you got a poem.    You knew where you were going.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

NGC 1055 Close-up
Image Credit & Copyright: Processing – Robert Gendler, Roberto Colombari
Data – European Southern Observatory, Subaru Telescope (NAOJ), et al.

Explanation: Big, beautiful spiral galaxy NGC 1055 is a dominant member of a small galaxy group a mere 60 million light-years away toward the aquatically intimidating constellation Cetus. Seen edge-on, the island universe spans over 100,000 light-years, a little larger than our own Milky Way. The colorful stars in this cosmic close-up of NGC 1055 are in the foreground, well within the Milky Way. But the telltale pinkish star forming regions are scattered through winding dust lanes along the distant galaxy’s thin disk. With a smattering of even more distant background galaxies, the deep image also reveals a boxy halo that extends far above and below the central bluge and disk of NGC 1055. The halo itself is laced with faint, narrow structures, and could represent the mixed and spread out debris from a satellite galaxy disrupted by the larger spiral some 10 billion years ago.
