Stevens Meets Holmes at 90

Justice Stevens, decked out in a bright red-bow tie, turned 90 years-old yesterday.

Oliver Wendell Holmes is the only other justice to have reached his 10th decade while still sitting on the Court. Holmes famously took account of his increased age by noting, "Old age is fifteen years older than I am."
