So I was scrolling through Alyssa Rosenberg's ThinkProgress blog when I read that Clarence Clemons has suffered a stroke. Only as the text was scrolling by, my mind interpreted it as "Clarence Thomas has suffered a stroke."
I panicked. Then I scrolled back up and read it right. I'm very sorry for Mr. Clemons' illness.
Just a reminder of the importance of the 2012 presidential election. Who wants to bet that Justices Alito, Scalia, Roberts, Thomas, and Kennedy will stay on the Court for another five and a half years? Me neither.
