Congratulations to Madam Justice Sotomayor.
This morning the Los Angeles Times carried this historic story, the swearing in of Justice Sonia Sotomayor, of New York, as the 111th person to serve on the Supreme Court of the United States and only the third woman so to serve. Here is a picture of the new justice taking the constitutional oath from the Chief Justice. This picture reminded me of the second oath-taking by President Obama at the hands of the Chief Justice when the Chief so badly bobbled the presidential oath. I notice today he is reading from cue cards. I hope he did better this time. It really is a banner day for Madam Justice and for our Hispanic citizens who now have representation on the hightest court in the land. Congratulations Madam Justice and I wish you good health and l ong, distinguishe and heroic service on SCOTUS. Bienvenidos!
