Letters to the Editor
ISSUE | RACY E-MAIL With robes, change Courtesy of Justice Seamus P. McCaffery, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court has become a laughingstock anew, a comedian's punchline ("Swift justice," Oct. 17). McCaffery, a former Philadelphia police officer, asserts that coarse language and crude jokes were part and parcel of his former job. I do not doubt it, but that type of comportment is something that a Supreme Court justice must shed long before ascending to the bench.
Research studies have shown that the amount of time that kids spend on chores has been on the decline for decades.
