I thought "Arvo Mikkanen" was a very unique name and wondered it's origin? Image, a Native American Tribe in Oklahoma with roots in Finland! Wonderful that your Mom was fluent in Finnish.. good on her!
Too bad the republicon senators blocked his nomination in Pres Obama's first term.
Now, I hope we have a chance with Diane J Humetewa.. maybe, since Mccain should be on board and might get some other recons to vote Aye.
I would like to see a Native American SCOTUS, too.. in fact I was talking about that the other day.
