Musings of Justice with a little help from George Washington

Impressed with a conviction that the due administration of justice is the firmest pillar of good Government,

I have considered the first arrangement of the Judicial department as essential to the happiness of our

Country, and to the stability of its political system; hence the selection of the fittest characters to expound

the law, and dispense justice, has been an invariable object of my anxious concern.

~ George Washington,in a letter to U.S. Attorney General Edmund Randolph (1789)

On the first day of March 2009, it seemed only fitting to reach back to our first President, George Washington. When I saw this quote, it reached out to me.

How fitting it is to see that early government was concerned with administration of JUSTICE within the judicial department; and how comforting that the Access to Justice Commission was established by the South Carolina Supreme Court.
