A Cautious Man

Be True To Your School ...
This little tidbit was in the middle of today's New York Times profile of Judge Sonia Sotomayor, President Obama's nominee to the United States Supreme Court -
When Ms. Sotomayor arrived at Princeton in the fall of 1972, she was one of the only Latinos there: there were no professors, no administrators, and only a double-digit number of students. Princeton women were sharply outnumbered as well; the first ones had been admitted only a few years earlier, and some alumni had protested their increasing ranks. (Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr., who graduated just a few months before Ms. Sotomayor arrived, belonged to one of the groups that protested.)
Good times coming on the Supremes!
