We begin this issue by reprinting Burke’s remarks at the Rehnquist Award ceremony. Burke tries to identify the key ingredients needed to let a court fulfill its promise to the public. His list includes fairness and respect, listening and understanding, and accountability. We think you’ll find his comments of interest. We invite your response, either via a letter to the editor or a responsive essay.
