Unlike the state's appellate justices, who seek voter confirmation but do not face challenges from competing candidates, trial judges on the state Superior Courts are subject to challenge every six years. Few are ever forced to the ballot, and when they are they generally prevail, as did the three Los Angeles County Superior Court judges who were challenged in the June primary. But Los Angeles voters still have a choice to make in two races in which there was no incumbent and no candidate emerged in June with a majority.

"I could be bounded in a nutshell, and count myself a king of infinite space--were it not that I have bad dreams," said Hamlet. Hamm, the tattered protagonist of Samuel Beckett's "Endgame" is the king of that nutshell. He reigns in a concrete basement, in a filthy robe that was once royal red. He is attended by his vexed servant Clov and annoyed by two ancient, dusty parents, Nagg and Nell. They pop up occasionally from the trash bin in which they live, sucking on dog biscuits.
