Bush, the 43rd President, writes of the joy he takes in his father. One of the most striking notions in Dubya's tribute is that, because of the … [Read more...]

Souter will scooter…(round-up)

Obama gets his first nomma...neeAlthough it was an empty moment of glory, I do believe I may have been the first to Twitter about Souter retiring from the SCOTUS at the relatively young age of 69.
