More on filing Judge Murnaghan's seat on the 4th Circuit

Something else interesting from How Appealing was a link to this letter to the editor, published in the Washington Post, about how "Maryland and Virginia are about to go to war again" over the nomination of Claude Allen (who is not from Maryland) to fill the appeals court seat vacated by the death of Baltimore's own Francis Murnaghan.

The letter notes that President Bush chose well in his two district court nominees for Maryland, Richard Bennett and William Quarles, and suggests that the White House ought to find another Maryland Republican, but I thought that had already been tried and the Democrat senators refused to accept the names put forward.
