Sotomayor to the Supreme Court

I've continue to find it both interesting and disgusting how the US Court System, which prides itself on "impartiality", has and continues to promote intolerance, inequality and environmental degradation with each new order. In this inherently flawed system made primarily for and by rich, white, christian, heterosexual males, I hope the appointment of this first Latina to the bench makes a difference. We know the true difference will only be made once all folks receive even distributions of benefits and burdens, through great systemic change, but for now, this seems like one of the better things President Obama has done. Now let's think about how we can steer him away from continuing to bomb the civilians of Pakistan as well as continue to believe he can eradicate all "terrorism" off this planet (among other things).
