Kozinski's fall

I agree that it is news that 9th Circuit Chief Judge Alex S. Kozinski had publicly accessible pornographic content on his own website (not the official page he has as a judge, but a privately hosted page). And he certainly did not seek to exculpate himself -- he said his son called and said he put some of the pics on the site, but the judge didn't say all of them came from others.

This is rather ridiculous. As a judge, your public image must be as clean and positive as possible. Kozinski failed that test badly.
