At this location Ms Althouse comments on Justice Clarence Thomas speaking at the University of Florida Law School.
And for law clerks he chooses "the kids I like," with "a preference for non-Ivy League law clerks," because "I'm not part of this new or faux nobility."For a long time there has been this "nobility" from the northeastern quadrant of the nation running things. And here is Justice Thomas trying to give a leg up to folks from the southeast quadrant.
The Justice Thomas talk is shown on this video of the webcast.
But, back to TTT. This sort of class distinction is not good for the nation. Sure, we know that Harvard is the second oldest university on the continent. But, let us not look down our collective noses at people who graduated from Slippery Rock State Teachers College until we see how they perform on the job.
