RICHARD EPSTEIN on the Sotomayor pick.

UPDATE: Heh: “I can’t even work up any outrage at this kind of tokenism. It’s expected, like her being a Princeton/Yale Law alumna. Just once in my life I’d like to see a president nominate to the court a graduate of, say, University of Tennessee Law School. That would be diversity. Instead, she’s just another Ivy Leaguer. Yawn.” Hey, don’t expect me to disagree . . . .

Plus, from Dave Kopel: “Judge Sotomayor’s record suggests hostility, rather than empathy, for the tens of millions of Americans who exercise their right to keep and bear arms.”

ANOTHER UPDATE: On the other hand, Kopel debunks a “highly dubious” charge against Sotomayor. “There is no reason to believe this is true. The purported source is ‘American News Inc.’ The link to this alleged news source is dead. In a quick Internet search, I found no such organization.”
