Sharon Nichols, a blogger and law student from Alabama, posted an interesting recap today of SCOTUS Justice Clarence Thomas's appearance at her school.
Justice Thomas played the question and answer game with law students, resulting in some pretty casual, conversational comments that almost verge on blase. Some excerpts below, but check out the full post at Thank You Ma'am to read more (including what happened when Sharon asked how a law school-trained individual can actually come down on side or another in a close argument).
"First year [of law school] was clear as cement!"
"You'd think I was in a concentration camp or something and I had to find a way to fill my time -- law school."
"I don't like excerpts because people have agendas when they excerpt cases."
