Judicial Term Limits

Last weekend, legal scholars convened at Duke Law School to discuss an Amendment to the Constitution that would change judicial terms of office from "for good behavior [read: life]" to 18 years. It is a good idea, and long overdue. Judges, especially the Supreme Court, are geriatric tyrants; turnover would be nice.
