The Country's Changing Concerns: Diversity

The Sotomayor nomination prompted me to check Wikipedia, which has a very interesting article on Demographics of the Supreme Court of the United States. Did you know Roger Taney was the first Catholic Justice? And we used to worry about geographic diversity? It's a nice way to view our changing history. (And the Wikipedia article on Sotomayor offers a different view than one will see in the hot button blogs--as a tease, she voted in support of pro-life position, racists, and baseball. )
