Sanda Day O'Connor Retires

Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor has just announced her retirement. O'Connor was the first woman appointed to the Supreme Court by Ronald Reagan in 1981. She will be leaving before the start of the court's next term in October, or when the Senate confirms a successor.

O'Connor sent her resignation letter to President Bush today, leaving Bush with his first opportunity to appoint a justice.

Developing story...

Good Luck, Your Honor. God save the Justice O'Connor, the United States, and the Honorable Court.

Here's to hoping the White House does not appoint a conservative zealot to the Court. Justice O'Connor has left the United States a better place.

As a moderately moderate moderate, I thank her for her service and hope the next Justice can be a logical, reasonable, moderate conservative.

Not like these crazy Rightards infesting the congress now.

A Johnny,
I have a question for Johnny and all the other moderately moderate moderate americans, is America perfect right now? Is the status quo the best the country can be? I am the first to admit We live in the best country in the world, but there is always room for change and improvements. Rather than being the guy/girl in the middle who is afraid to stand out, take a side, have an opinion. I don't care if I agree or disagree but use your mind and have an opinion

Be prepared to have Roe v. Wade overturned real soon. The government will have even more power than they already do and might right to choose will gone.
