Clarence Thomas Speaks! (First Time in 7 Years!)

Clarence Thomas, by claiming he gets all the info he needs from legal briefs, has managed to sleep through more than half a decade of Supreme Court arguments. Today, jolted awake by an opportunity to needle his alma mater (with whom he has an apparently contentious relationship) Thomas finally said something out loud. To think, there are six and seven year-olds who had never heard the great man speak until today. Of course, as luck would have it, his comment was so uproarious, the gallery broke into hysterical laughter, and the official court transcript did not catch it. Lucikly, SCOTUSblog was there to cut through the noise and tweet it out.

Well, he would know. [Slate]
