"Sandra Day O'Connell (Retired Justice, U.S. Supreme Court)."

How quickly we forget...

From a list of 2012 Law School Commencement Speakers.

Can't wait for Ruth Bader Ginsberg

She retired gracefully. I admire her for that.

Jay said...

Who is O'Connell???

Matthew Sablan said...

I thought it was Sandra Day O'Connor. Oh, internet. What can't you confuse me on? How'd TaxProf get her name wrong? It is right at their link

EMD said...

Eric Holder gets around.

EMD said...

Also! TaxProf needs a makeover.

The Sunday after Bush vs Gore she scored a hole in one at Paradise Valley golf course.

Gone and forgotten. Plus, good riddance.

I wish I could forget her support for racism and her incredibly stupid rationalizations for ignoring the constitution, especially the "25 years..." statement - it'd be hilarious if it weren't serious.

The Glass Ceiling got her in the end.

She was born before Albert Gore invented SpellCheck

I've been trying to forget. Thanks for nothing.

He fixed it. I missed the correction notification.

That must have been painful.

Hope the Legal Hereafter has sofas so she can lay on her tummy.

Scott said...

The error has since been magically corrected.

Scott, Sadly she retired to take care of her husband and he died very shortly afterward. I saw her on Letterman once. I always liked her, but even more after that. She talked about growing up on a ranch and shooting gophers. That's a womman!

dreams said...

I read her book about growing up on a ranch and I really enjoyed it but she became too liberal on the court.

I grew up on a ranch and shot gophers. What a womman I am! Yay me!

Disastrous Eric Holder will be speaking at Harvard. Kamala Harris (imminent disaster) at Berkeley. Goodwin Liu (narrowly avoided disaster) speaking at three commencements (USC, Davis and USF).
