Heard: Judicial Confirmation

Recently I was showing a new intern how to sort mail. She picked up a letter from a constituent with bad handwriting. She asked me what the letter said. I explained to her that the letter was about Sonia Sotomayor. This intern then responded so- so- who? Who is that? I explained who she was. The intern then responded, "I thought judges just took their place."

The best part of the conversation? The intern is in law school!
