Flying Solo?

"I think there is a disease of literacy or laziness, 
because just the commentary will tell you they haven't read it."

Now is Clarence Thomas chastising those who criticize him for not actually reading his Supreme Court Opinions or is he referring to their ignorance when it pertains to a reading of the Constitution?  Well, unlike what he defines in the ever-waning, but never gone Civil Rights Era, the line is hazy.  As this Los Angeles Times profile attests, the Fountainhead loving proponent of Originalism (and once marginal contrarian of the Court) is gaining new currency in a country increasingly relying on antiquated belief systems.  Let's shame the hipsters and call it Ultimate Retro.  Surely even Ayn is turning in her grave.
