American Justice

Via New Yorker, a fascinating look at US Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy and his jurisprudence that looks sometimes to the Court of World Opinion in crafting weighty decisions.

This is a terrific profile because it gives one a good sense of the man and how he thinks. It also reveals the rarefied intellectual air where American justice is crafted. Very impressive and confidence inspiring.

How many of us know anything at all about our Supreme Court Justices? Who are they? How did they get there? How do they think? Why do they decide what they decide?

Aren't these much too important a set of questions to leave to a bunch of lawyers?
