In December 1980, when I became a First Circuit judge, the United States Court of Appeals was composed of three active members, Frank Coffin, Lee Campbell, and Hugh Bownes, and one senior member, Baily Aldrich. For me that court has always showed me what a great court could be. It was the court that through example taught many of us how judges can, and should, do their job.
