Earlier this week I happened to stroll past the restaurant Louie Louie on Walnut Street. Upon first glance I was struck by the refined personal style and rarefied affect of its diners. Their conversations were saturated with intellectualism, including topics like the cheapest time to buy flights to Switzerland.

The person who is going to assume her place must strike a balance between understanding the spirit of the law and remaining true to the Constitution since that apparently matters a lot.
