    I hate that "brand" thing as well. I first heard about it in college, 20-some years ago.
    I guess I'm just a generic product; no cachet here. Oh well.

    I have never had a problem paying taxes that solve a genuine problem that citizens have. I have a big problem funding graft and war.

    No, it wasn't serious. One hopes. But she is supposedly an "originalist," whatever that means.

    It would certainly help if our feckless leadership weren't loudly spreading mixed messages. They're really not even mixed, at this point.

    Some wag already predicted she'll vote to overturn Loving vs. Virginia, leaving Clarence Thomas and his wife in the lurch. I'm pretty sure that isn't likely. Maybe.

    I had understood that Scalia was also a member of the People of Praise, but I can't find any evidence of it, so perhaps that was just "fake news." Also, he apparently stood slightly to the left of...
