Backward thinking

If the Governor’s Council does not approve Bob ­Ullmann as a Superior Court judge, it won’t be the first time they get things exactly backwards.

First, some disclosure: Ullmann is married to ­Patty Wen, a colleague of mine at the Globe. That said, I wouldn’t know Ullmann if he fell over me. The last time I saw him I had black hair, and Roosevelt was president. Teddy, not ­Franklin.
