Slate essay on First Monday Post Thomas' Revelations

Follow the link in the title to this post to read the Slate essay by Dahlia Lithwick on her take this week on First Monday after a slew of news articles and blog postings about various justices. And of course, there is Justice Clarence Thomas' vivid autobiography which was published on October 1.

My Grandfather's Son: A Memoir, reviewed in the New York Times as "exceptionally vivid," characterizing his confirmation hearings (involving allegations of sexual harassment by Anita Hill) as a "high tech lynching." Anita Hill responded in the New York Times opinion page.

I guess the Court seems more colorful this year.
