come on, Clarence

Justice Thomas, who has not asked a question from the bench since 2006, recently spoke with a group of students and opened up a bit. I was surprised that he would be so candid about struggling with his mood. But I was HORRIFIED by:
He talked about his own school days, reminiscing fondly about seeing “a flag and a crucifix in each classroom.”
Oh yes, the good old days when the church and state played together more openly.

He also commented:
“I am often surprised by the virtual nobility that seems to be accorded those with [the Bill of Rights]...shouldn’t there at least be equal time for our Bill of Obligations and our Bill of Responsibilities?”
Read the full article in the New York Times.
