News from Washington ...

WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP/MSNBC) - President Barack Obama chose federal appeals judge Sonia Sotomayor as the nation's first Hispanic Supreme Court justice on Tuesday, praising her as "an inspiring woman" with both the intellect and compassion to interpret the Constitution wisely.

Introducing his choice, Obama said, "Along the way, she's faced down barriers, overcome the odds and lived out the American dream that brought her parents here so long ago." The president called on the Senate to confirm Sotomayor before the court begins its new term in October, and noted pointedly that she has already won Senate approval twice in her career.

Anonymous, thanks for stopping in, and sharing the information ... although considering the content of your comment, I find myself asking, "And you are?"

No need to answer, though.

As for the J-Wellians, I don't think anyone loses much sleep wondering what's under those paper sacks of theirs ... makes me think of one of Lydia's lines from "Beetlejuice" ... "Are you gross under there? Are you Night of the Living Dead under there, like all bloody veins and puss?"

Back to topic, though ... if you have a comment on President Obama's nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court, please feel free to stop in again, and share.
