Well I've been bouncing around airports for the last two days and have been 1/6 in getting a working WiFi connection - it's like the bad old days of 2003 all over again. So I'm taking advantage of a momentary connection to throw up a quickie ONT.

Trump: My Fortune is Too Yuge To be Accurately Captured by the Puny FEC Forms

The Justice Who Stands Alone

Like a medieval monk preserving Western culture through the Dark Ages, Thomas soldiered doggedly on, carrying the largest writing workload on the Court, pressing his point in cases small and large, sometimes at odds with his conservative colleagues, often alone. Perhaps history will never return to the path he is marking, but no one can say we weren't warned.

Thomas's critics outside the legal profession tend to fall back on open attacks on his race (a "clown in blackface," said Star Trek actor, Facebook meme-sharer, and gay-rights crusader George Takei recently) or unsubtly coded attacks (such as Harry Reid's assertion that Thomas wasn't smart or a good writer like Scalia, though Reid couldn't name any of his opinions).
