Only a few days ago prompted by recent significant historical news cycles I began reading a book I have had for years titled "The NINE - Inside the Secret World of the Supreme Court by Jeffrey Toobin".  Have not gotten that far into the book, and was reading just on Monday night about the first female Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor who retired from the high court in 2006.  Her achievements and the laws she helped enact are an incredible contribution to our everyday lives and in helping our society enjoy many privileges.  Today the news in which she...
