The Supreme Court said on Wednesday that return to personal logic This fall, without a general audience. This is a good step towards normalcy, but we hope it will not mean the loss of the common sense and wisdom of Justice Clarence Thomas.
Justice Thomas once went 10 years without asking a question in an oral debate. He made news in 2013 by pronunciation of nine words: “Well, look, he didn’t give good advice.” The transcript is distorted, but it followed a discussion of how one lawyer went to Yale and the other to Harvard. Judging by the laughter, it was clearly a joke at the expense of one of those schools, or perhaps both. Explaining his long silence, Justice Thomas has said that lawyers are “betrayed” and need a chance to present their case.
