This article is an opinion.As we begin to celebrate the Christmas season and close out 2022, allow me to share the story of two great Jefferson County/Alabama political legends.Alabama Supreme Court Justice, Mike Bolin, is retiring at the end of the year from the state's highest judicial tribunal.  Judge Bolin is a young 72 and would not have retired and would have sought and been elected to another six-year term if it were not for an antiquated state law that disallows someone running for a judgeship in the state after age 70.
