My announced appearance on the Sue Wiley radio call-in talk show (WVLK 590 AM), Lexington, Kentucky, scheduled for tomorrow, Thursday, June 9, 2005 beginning at 11:00 AM., to discuss our “activist judge” in Kentucky who is offering going to church as a way for defendants to get probated in his court, has been CANCELLED. According to a phone message just received, this is because of other pressing news that needs to be covered tomorrow morning. Maybe the Michael Jackson trial, which has some 2,000 newspersons eagerly awaiting a verdict rather than providing us with news about more important (but to many, less interesting) things, like a judge violating the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States by attempting to establish a religion in a Kentucky court.
My appearance will probably be rescheduled, as I have been on the Sue Wiley show many times, and, as anyone who has made a few media appearances knows, things happen, scheduled program content changes, and such happenings and changes often occur quite rapidly.
I have reported our concern about this judge to a member of the Board of Governors of the Kentucky Bar Association (KBA), now assembled for the KBA annual convention in Louisville, Kentucky. I would go, but I already have enough hours of Continuing Legal Education (CLE) to remain in good standing, and I have to get ready for Camp Quest 2005, now only nine (9) days away!

It is not too late to send one or more campers to Camp Quest 2005 (our 10th Anniversary, and the last year of the Age of Helen & Edwin). Nor is it too late to provide a Campership to sponsor a worthy kid who might show up in that judge’s court someday. You can find out about Camp Quest here: www.camp-quest.com
