Wear One’s Heart on the Sleeve

真情流露

最近阿拉斯加前聯邦參議員史蒂文斯(Sen. Ted Stevens)時來運轉,去年涉及的貪瀆官司已由司法部長侯德(Attorney General Eric Holder)下令取消,主審本案的法官蘇立文(Judge Emmet G. Sullivan)還要追究起訴史蒂文斯的檢察官們的瀆職行為。這位讓史蒂文斯翻身的法曹以守正不阿,嫉惡如仇,並鍥而不捨(tenacity)著稱。不過蘇立文的頂頭上司聯邦地院首席法官藍伯斯(Royce C. Lamberth)說,蘇另一不為人知的特質是:He does wear his heart on the sleeve sometimes……. It's probably not the first quality that comes to mind when you think of a judge. 所謂wear his heart on the sleeve sometimes是說「有時會真情流露」,這是你想到法官時,不會最先想到的特質。說得也是,法官都是鐵面無私,沒有什麼人情的,怎麼會wear his heart on the sleeve呢?顯然蘇立文是個例外。
