"Mirror the country " ?! The writer of tis article is either on drugs or is insane. The present make up of SCOTUS IN NO WAY "mirrors the country".

For example, the U.S. IS, and ALWAYS HAS BEEN, a Protestant-majority country. Yet, NONE of the present SCOTUS JUSTICES are Protestants ! A MAJORITY of the people in the U.S. are Protestants.

About 21% of the U.S. population is Roman Catholic, yet 67% of SCOTUS justices are Roman Catholic, and Jews make up about 2% of the U.S. population, yet, fully 33% of the SCOTUS justices are Jews. And while MORE THAN 50% of the U.S. population identifes themselves as Protestants, ZERO PERCENT of SCOTUS justices are Protestant.

So to say that the SCOTUS members "mirror the country" is at best "laughable", and at worst, a "blatant lie".

Not to mention the country is more than 50% female, which means there should be at least 2 more women on the court.

Time for Kennedy & Scalia to step down so Obama can balance the court!

Well folks, as someone else pointed out some time ago, how much credibility can you give to someone who thinks we have a "High" court.

On a lighter note, it's still winter and it's supposed to be 90 degrees here today as well as the next few days here.
