The next judge



Rep. John Boozman will send six, rather than three, names to President Bush as possible nominees to succeed the late federal Judge George Howard. Three are white -- Kevin Crass and Chuck Banks of Litttle Rock and Jeannette Robertson of Jonesboro -- and three are black -- Marie-Bernarde Miller and Leon Johnson of Little Rock and Brian Miller of Helena. Arkansas's senators have urged nomination of a black lawyer to follow Howard, who was the only black federal district judge in the state.
