The Court "Supreme."

So Judge Sotomayor's nomination is likely to be confirmed. Big deal. She's just a louder version of the nearly-invisible David Souter.

Future generations of law students will suffer most. Though they don't yet know it, they're condemned to slog through the opinions of TWO Supreme Court justices who, between them, couldn't carry William O. Douglas's coffee cup.

Somehow I expect the Republic will muddle through. And anybody stupid enough to go to law school goddamn well deserves what they get.
