You have to realize something about Federal Appellate Judges. There are very few of them. They know each other. They go to the same conferences. They like each other. They do not call their peers idiots. They explain why they arrive at a different conclusion than their peers.

Like all generalizations, there are exceptions to the above. For example, Posner and Scalia have little love for each other.
