We Are Deep In the Heart of Texas

Nomadic seasons of farming adventures with nature thrown in to include; a pinch of family, snippets of friends, counting our blessings, paying IT forward, home school, and the spicy things I decide to rant about.

Sotomayor to take oath, will you watch?

Personally, I will.

I am super thrilled not only is she only the third woman EVER to take this Oath but, the first hispanic. And this will be televised as she takes the oath twice.


Article here:

a small snippet from the article

"Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts will swear in Sotomayor twice at the Supreme Court. The first ceremony will be private. A second ceremony will be held in front of Sotomayor's friends and family as well as the media.

It will also mark the first time the oath-taking ceremony will be open to television cameras in the court's history.

Sotomayor, a 55-year-old federal appeals court judge, was confirmed Thursday in a 68-31 vote. Nine Republicans joined a unanimous Democratic caucus in supporting her nomination. The only senator who was not present for the vote was Sen. Ted Kennedy, D-Massachusetts, because of illness, but he has supported Sotomayor in the past."


YES I will have my sons watch and they will not miss any school. Another thing did you know the First Bush appointed her as a district judge? Later Pres Clinton appointed her to the Circuit Court of Appeals.

Another point, twenty years after the confirmation of Clarence Thomas; We the People have an 'African-American' President. So hopefully, in my lifetime there will be a woman president.

BETTER YET, perhaps before I become worm food: socio-economic status, race, gender, political party, religious identity, sexual orientation will no longer be a sticking point for discussion about an individual's talent and abilities.

WELCOME ABOARD, HONORABLE SOTOMAYOR!
