DJ profiles 4/2's Justice McKinster

Here's how today's DJ begins its profile of 4/2's Justice McKinster:
You might think Justice Art McKinster would be slowing down or ready to exchange his gavel for a golf club. After all, he's in his 23rd year as a member of the 4th District Court of Appeal, and he's approaching his 30th year on the bench.
You would be wrong.
Practitioner quotes characterize him as practical, procedural, conscientious, and an active questioner. The article also quotes Justice McKinster as saying that he looks forward to having his cases taken by the Supreme Court because "It's kind of fun to have a puck in play. ...[I]t's exhilarating and an adrenaline rush."
Art W. McKinster, Associate Justice
"We handle anything the cat drags in."
