I'll be on Open Source, a nationally distributed public radio show based in Boston and hosted by Christopher Lydon, at 7 Eastern, 6 Central Time -- in other words, in a few minutes. I'll be talking about Supreme Court nominations along with Cass Sunstein, Eric Muller, and Charles Fried. You can listen live here. And it's Halloween, with kids coming to the door.... Crazy day! And I've got a final edit on an op-ed to turn around before I go on. Gotta run!
UPDATE: That was interesting. Cass Sunstein came ready with statistics based on reading 41 Alito dissents and concluding that Alito was a predictable conservative vote, a point he repeated at least five times. And then he accused me of spinning.... Isn't this like "he who smelt it, dealt it"? He who detects spinning is the spinner?
Although I'm detecting it now, so....
Oh, lord! I am hitting the wall tonight!
And where are all the trick-or-treaters? I've got sooooo much extra candy! Two tiny kids came to the door just now and I held out a giant bowl o' candy and said "Take as much as you want."
Spiderman and the Princess each took one piece.
"Go ahead, take as much as you want."
"Go ahead, take two."
Answer: "I already have one."
Awwwww.... little kids are so sweet!
UPDATE: Here's the recording of the show.
