Congratulations to Justice Sotomayer, for breaking many firsts, the first Latina Supreme Court Justice, the first justice who was raised in public housing, and the first with diabetes. Bravo for breaking the glass ceiling and being willing to endure so much scrutiny to serve your country.

I’m sure that Justice Ginsburg is relieved to have another woman on the court again.

If you are interesting in the inner workings of the Supreme Court may I recommend The Nine: Inside the Secret World of the Supreme Court a stunning non-fiction work by court watcher Jeffrey Toobin.
