My cousin James DeWolf Perry has a new post today at his blog The Living Consequences about the ongoing saga of law professor Goodwin Liu’s nomination to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals by President Obama.

I first wrote in March about the controversy surrounding Liu’s nomination AND his connection to our family journey as documented in the film Traces of the Trade. The controversy began in June 2008 at a Council on Foundations conference of all places. I wrote this update in April and discussed how Senate Republicans blocked Liu’s nomination just last month.

We’ll continue to follow this saga as long as it drags out. I encourage you to also take this opportunity to spend some time at The Living Consequences. James maintains a terrific blog with many thought-provoking subjects and comments.
