All of which is why I say that her limited expression of emotions (ie the poetry)
was appropriate for the dignity of the court. That is part of the obligations
of s judge. Justice may be blind, but it is not without feeling.

  I've appeared before Judge Brinkema a number of times and had one long trial with her(altho a "long" trial in the Eastern District of VA)is a week. She is well respected, treats defendants fairly and was very tolerant of Moussaoui's frequent outrageous outbursts. She also sanctioned the gov't for misconduct and disallowed certain gov't witnesses. She saw that he got as fair a trial as the situation allows. I'd let her try me.  Terry
