Judging Sonia

Congratulations Sonia Sotomayor~ for your confirmation as newest kid on the block on the Supreme Court.  Justice Sotomayor is an historical pick, as she is the third female justice, and the first Hispanic person on the high court. 

More than 1/2 the U.S. population is female, but the supreme Court has been predominantly male- and white. 

It's refreshing to see diversity at the highest levels of the various branches of Government. 

Our newest Lady Justice once lived in the housing projects in the Bronx. 
Sotomayor later graduated summa cum laude from Princeton University and went on to attend Yale Law School, where she was editor of the Yale Law Journal. 
You've come a long way, baby------------------------------------------->
