After a gut-wrenching detour through the land of cronyism, another excellent judicial pick for President Bush

I would like to congratulate President Bush on his nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court of Judge Samuel A. Alito, Jr., currently of the Court of Appeals for the 3rd Judicial Circuit. Judge Alito is an eminently qualified judge who has a long history of interpreting the Constitution as written, not as some may wich that it be written. President Bush promised to nominate a judges who strictly interpret the Constitution, and that is exactly what Judge Alito has done for the past 15 years on the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals and will certainly do for many years in the U.S. Supreme Court.

I would hope that Democrat Senators will treat Judge Alito with the respect that is owed both to him and to the office to which he has been nominated. If Senators do not believe that Judge Alito should be confirmed, then let them vote against his confirmation, but any attempt to prevent a majority of Senators from getting the opportunity to vote for Judge Alito's confirmation will be met by fierce resistance not only from Republican Senators who must protect the institution of the Senate, but from the American people.

I'd just as soon not discuss anything Guido has ever said, in class, or out. You may think this is ideological, but he and his crowd went to Pepe's, and I was always a Sally's man myself (if YOU went to YLS, you will know what this means).

I will tell you that his name is spelled CalAbresi, and the case in question is Scott vs. ShephErd. Carelessness in spelling (particularly with those As and Es) can be a sign of a lazy mind.

As for the hero of your blog, I can say I spent some wonderful time with Barry, both in Scottsdale and Sedona. He was pleased as punch when the cross-country team named after him (it was in Chandler or Glendale or some town) won the state championship.

I don't know whether carelessness in spelling is a sign of a lazy mind, but using "vs." instead of "v." when citing a case is a sign of spending too much time watching Nancy Grace and Greta Van Susteren. BTW, is the case really spelled Shepherd? I could have sworn it was Shephard (the Calebresi thing was, of course, an unintentional typo).

I never went to Sally's or Pepe's. I was a Yorkside man myself (right next to the Law School building). But why eat pizza when you could have a couple of cheeseburgers and a pig-on-a-blanket at the Yankee Doodle or a gyro and order of grape leaves at Broadway Pizza?
