On the late Judge Matney

Via Nancy and VLW, I saw this article in the Bluefield paper on the memorial for Greg Matney, a district court judge. I never knew him except as a voice on the telephone in a couple of cases.

If you wanted to be a judge and only got to be one for a short time, would that be better than not at all? I think so. I have reached similar conclusions about other life goals - even a little of the real whatever is better than none.

Tis better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all.

I don't think Greg would have said "no thanks" to the offer of being named as a judge even for such a short time. What is so sad is there wouldn't have been a better person on the bench.

He should have had longer.
