Why Hasn't Clarence Thomas Asked A Question In Five Years?

Our most Laconic Supreme Court Justice has spent the last 5 years sitting silently on the bench and not asking any questions, not unlike the popular kids who always sat in the back of your sophomore year World History class. He says he acts that way because he's self conscious of the way he speaks, he owes those… » 2/13/11 12:03pm 2/13/11 12:03pm

Why I Feel Bad For Both Anita Hill And Clarence Thomas

Not infrequently do I find myself desperate to restore the early nineties. They played Pavement on the radio in the early nineties! And girls didn't dress so slutty. And on that note! This whole Anita Hill Clarence "Don't Call Me Isiah" Thomas rehashalon (Anita, above, was just on Good Morning America) is reminding me… » 10/02/07 12:30pm 10/02/07 12:30pm
