  •  Judge Coughenour is a Reagan appointee (4.00)
    Formerly a partner at Bogle and Gates and a rock ribbed Republican.  Heard him speak a couple years ago and it was interesting.  His daughter's experiences growing up and entering the work force seem to have changed his opinions on some issues.

    Be that as it may, Coughenour is a conservative judge, but a fair one.  I am impressed by his statements.  

    His address for snail mail is:  

    Judge John C. Coughenour
    US District Court for the Western District of Washington
    700 Stewart Street
    Seattle, WA  98101

    •  I called Judge Coughenour (4.00)
      at 206-370-8800

      and talked to a nice woman in his office.  I told her I was calling from North Carolina to thank Judge Coughenour for his strong stand for our Constitution and our system of justice.  She seemed pleased---I'll bet they don't get many Thank Yous.

      •  I talked to what sounded like a nice young man (none)
        and thanked him for his eloquent words.  Ive never called a judge before to thank him for a virdict but I think this is important.  The man said that he would pass it on.  I feel proud of this judge and have renewed faith that there are people out there in positions of power who know right from wrong.  

        But it does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods or no god. It neither picks my pocket, nor breaks my leg.

    •  I'll give him a call later on (none)
      Bet he'll be surprised to get a phone call from a servicemember from Iraq.

      What time zone is that? West Coast? Hmm, 4 pm there now, probably ought to call soon.
