Thank you very much for the invitation to introduce this wonderful symposium honoring my mother, Judge Betty Binns Fletcher. Let me begin by thanking my mother. Without her I would not be here. I realize that everyone can, and should, thank their mother for being here—that is, for their very existence. But I mean my thanks not only in that way. I mean also that without her I really would not be here—at this podium, speaking to you as a judge on the Ninth Circuit.
William A. Fletcher,
