The Zeidler Thing

There I was Saturday morning, glass of OJ in hand, flipping through the paper before starting my day. I read an OP-ED about judicial activism that I agreed with, but almost did a spit take when I read the author's name.

Frank Zeidler.

Yes, the Frank Zeidler, former socialist major of Milwaukee. He was coming out in favor of strict constructionist judicial philosophy and restraint from the bench. My first reaction was that he had a stroke. Or something else of that magnitude. In the end, I chalked it up to someone surprising me with their opinion and moved on.

Here's the kicker. Zeidler didn't write it. Our beloved newspaper got duped. MU Professor John McAdams is on top of this whole thing. Check it out.
