Sotomayor wastes no time choosing sides
...guess which one?
OK, it's not as though we didn't see this one coming, but it is fun to point out:
Justice Sonia Sotomayor is getting into the swing of being a member of the Supreme Court.
Sotomayor made what appears to be her first public decision as a justice on Monday, voting unsuccessfully to delay the execution of an Ohio death row inmate.
She voted along with the court's liberal bloc _ Justices John Paul Stevens, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer _ to stop the execution of Jason Getsy, whose execution is Tuesday.
And the sun came up in the east this morning...
