Justice Thomas is “persuaded” to retire by Mother Nature and POTUS makes real history by nominating Anita Hill? Would the nation ever recover from a five to four majority of women on the Court?
Btw, I am convinced that the fixation on personalities in the U.S. is a consequence of the fact that, in the law, the person counts for nothing. Artificial or natural does not matter since neither have standing. Citizens have standing; criminals have standing; people have standing, but not the individual moral person.
