Well said Publius Valerius Publicola. My thoughts also -That is the real problem with yesterday's results. From what I have read there are at least two retirements expected soon from the bench.

You know what, I never paid attention.. But if you own land in WC, then I get 50% credit for the take home test. Did not vote for the person you mentioned. Did you vote for Romney?
