Justice Kennard to retire April 5

The DJ reports that Justice Kennard faxed a retirement letter to Gov. Brown today.
(See also here and here (for a different "DJ".) [FYI, Serious kudos to Emily Green for scooping everyone with her story and getting it posted long before the rest of the press caught wind.]
The letter ends on a poetic note, quoting Langston Hughes' "Dreams":
Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
