Justice John Paul Stevens Dead at 99


Em Carpenter

Em was one of those argumentative children who was sarcastically encouraged to become a lawyer, so she did. She is a proud life-long West Virginian, and, paradoxically, a liberal. In addition to writing about society, politics and culture, she enjoys cooking, podcasts, reading, and pretending to be a runner. She will correct your grammar. You can find her on Twitter.

    He was one of the last of a kind in many ways. He was liberal Republican, he wrote his own opinions instead of leaving it to his clerks, and he did not participate in cert pool. He represented a kind of politics and public service that many people mourn in passing. To bad he couldn’t make 100.Report
