It’s official: the 111th Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court has now been sworn in. I am neither female nor Latino; yet I’m brimming with pride. Perhaps, since I am neither female nor latino, “delight” is more appropriate. NO! I might not be female or latino, but that doesn’t prevent me from being proud of  another human being whose ethnicity and gender has disadvantaged her in this great egalitarian society and has gone on to beat the odds.   The day is finally here. Finally, a Hispanic on the Court—another minority–and the third woman.  I look forward to teaching her judicial opinions.
