THINGS SUPREME COURT JUSTICE STEPHEN BREYER TOLD ME

We just did an interview at the Court. Highlights:
  1. I've always wanted to read more Mark Twain.
  2. Often it's very arbitrary who gets executed - it's not the worse of the worst, very often.
  3. Do I go back and look back in an opinion I wrote and try to measure it and say, 'Was I right? Ha ha ha? No, I don't... It's on to the next case.
  4. Even if you say Bush v Gore, I'd say, I could convince you in an hour that maybe not even that one was political.
