Interview with Justice Ginsburg!  Sent to me courtesy of my dear old friend Brady.  Not that he’s actually old, mind you, but I have known him since I was 6.

Tonight?  Away We Go, which I keep wanting to call Up and Away.

    I saw that. Can’t wait to read it. Will come back to discuss.

    Interesting article. I still remember my first day of law school. We had to go around the room and name our favorite Supreme Court justice, then explain why. Since I couldn’t name the whole Supreme Court at the time, I really wanted to drop out then and there. But instead, I confidently stated that I didn’t have a favorite per se, but I had been watching some of Ginsberg’s confirmation hearings and had a good feeling about her. I was such a dweeb . . . now, today, I can name the Supreme Court, but I still don’t have a favorite!

    Yeah, I remember my first few weeks in law school when someone was talking about Scalia’s opinion in some case and the guy was pronouncing Scalia more in the correct Italian way and my bestest law school friend of three long weeks or however long we’d been in school, Jessica Vianes, turned to me and said, “He’s pronouncing it wrong.” And I said, not knowing how the hell to pronounce it having never heard of the guy before, “Well, that’s how it would be pronounced in Italian.” And Jess said, “But that’s not the way Scalia says it.” Eeks! I felt I skated out of that one without revealing my total ignoramus self, but I’m not entirely sure.

    Only Jess would have known how Scalia says his own name. 😉

    I spotted one Alta Charo on Monday at Hilldale. She looked the same.

    Hee hee. She was so cute about it, too — “Um, that’s not how his name is pronounced.”

    Oh, Prof Charo. How we worried one day that table was going to revolt against you sitting on it.
