Ah, the Local Color in These Parts: Elyria Judge Has Che Guevara Poster in Office
(Hat tip: Jonathan Adler at The Corner)
This Morning Journal story is from just down the road in Elyria:
ELYRIA -- Framed posters of Barack Obama, Che Guevara and Henry David Thoreau hang in the office of Lorain County Common Pleas Judge James Burge.(emphasis added)
The judge, who is conducting hearings on the constitutionality of Ohio's method for putting prisoners to death, said he respects those who back up words with action and that Thoreau, the 19th-century philosopher, was his first role model.
"I tend to admire people who in my opinion go beyond their speech -- they actually do what they say," Burge said.
How's 100 million dead people for "backing up words with actions"?
And, for the record, your honor:
