End-of-term academentia has kept me away from the blog as has near-constant tweeting to keep up with fast-changing and ever more horrible events in Spain related to the persecution of Judge Garzon by fascists, Socialists who are either jealous of his prominence or resentful of his persecution of corruption within their own party, and judges still loyal to the dictatorship during which they first began their "legal" careers. As I explain to friends unfamiliar with the situation, what is happening in Spain now is akin to imagining Nurenberg judges taken off the bench for investigating Nazi crimes against humanity following suits brought against them by Nazis. As a recent New York Times editorial wrote: "the real crimes are the disappearances (during the Spanish Civil War and the Franco dictatorship), not the investigations..."
