More on opposition to confirmation of Judge Boyle to the Fourth Circuit

The AP has this report that begins: "Black leaders urged the U.S. Senate to reject the nomination of U.S. District Judge Terrence Boyle to a federal appeals court seat, saying his hostility to civil rights and high rate of reversal makes him unfit for the job."

The article quotes Congressman Mel Watt, the chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus. I like Mel Watt because of his stories about growing up in North Carolina, some of which are told here in a rough transcript of an interview on C-SPAN.
