Yesterday, the Senate voted 68 to 31 in favor of confirming Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court. This of course makes her the first Latina on the bench, if you don't count Oliver Wendell Holmes. While many conservatives are none too pleased with the appointment, I understand Antonin Scalia is quite optimistic, hoping Sotomayor ushers in an era of churros at the Thursday SCOTUS potlucks.
