On Saturday, the Bristol paper opined: "Trailblazing lady lawyers earn praise."
I've spent a lot of time talking to people about these judgeships, as it is a favorite pastime, but the gender of any of the candidates has not been part of the discussion.
Notwithstanding all that liberal thinking, I was more intrigued by an article in today's Bristol paper about a young woman who said she has not seen much racial prejudice growing up as a person of color here in Bristol. I think perhaps she has been more fortunate than others. Also, she wasn't asked whether she had experienced sex discrimination.
