There will be plenty of commentary and analysis of federal Judge Susan Bolton's decision to block much of the Arizona immigration law from going into effect, but the thing it confirmed for me (not that it needed much confirmation) is what a wonderful and shrewd reporter my former Harvard Crimson and New York Sun colleague Josh Gerstein is. In a July 22 Politico blog post, Josh pretty much called the judge's decision, six days in advance of the decision's being issued. It's hard enough accurately to report the news after it happens; the skill of predicting the news before it happens is rare indeed, and it is one of the things that makes journalistic reputations.
