1. Love the way she holds Roberts dead center in her gaze as she shakes his hand.
Saying, 'I'm your equal now Buster'.

11. Great pictures...but I can't help thinking...this is gonna make family get togethers really ackward
for that brother. Mom's gonna be all "Your sister's on the Supreme Court now and you still have that dead end job and when are you gonna give me grandchildren" and like that.

Poor bastard's really in for it now.

14. He's doing okay for himself
He's a doctor (pediatric allergist) and I think he brought children to the Senate hearings.

21. Thanks.
Guess everybody else took their anti-comedy pills today.

Seriously, I am glad that Justice Sotomayor was sworn in. No disrespect to her or her brother intended. OK?

22. I thought your "Look how well your SISTER'S doing!" post was funny,
but I've been jumped on several times lately for no good reason, and I've just about given up posting for the time being.

It's not just anti-comedy around here lately -- it's like everybody's hyper-excitable, and bites without even barking first.

Somebody will now rise up and call me an ignoramus because "everybody knows" a dog who's going to bite you doesn't bark first.

I hope we all get better soon. This is like walking on spilled carpet tacks. . . . :shrug:

28. Or a good purging of those who are looking for trouble instead of
discussion. Ya, there is quite a few people out there who have ulterior motives. (see the paid troll post)
