The rule of law is in decline and the Supreme Court is to blame. So argued Justice Clarence Thomas in a powerful dissent in Whole Woman's Health v. He...
Early Monday morning, the US Supreme Court made its first significant ruling on abortion since its 2007 decision on the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act, supporting clinics' rights to litigate against state regulations that have no medical basis.
Let's be clear. I abhor actions that Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu has taken. It is appropriate and acceptable to criticize Israeli policy. But it is neither appropriate nor acceptable to question Israel's response when its enemy is sworn to its destruction.
The level of stress and intense competition was at an all-time high. I was determined to become an architect no matter what -- not even being subjected to sexual harassment.
One can say what they want about Thomas but with his latest judicial insult, he's been a man of his word. Since that fateful day in 1991 when a deeply divided and even more deeply reluctant Senate confirmed him to the high court, Thomas vowed payback against those who ridiculed, reviled, and hounded him during the confirmation fight, and have relentlessly lambasted him since then.
Saying no to Clinton is the most dangerous of dangerous propositions. It would say yes to the possibility of three more Thomas's on the High Court.
Many industries allow overt and covert racism, seen both in attitudes and paychecks, and advertising is one of the worst.
I hate the smell of gin. That's what I kept thinking about as I watched HBO's movie, "Confirmation," which revisited the uproar surrounding Anita Hill's testimony during Clarence Thomas's confirmation hearings.
Anita Hill believed in the system and trusted the process, even though in the end it betrayed her. The Republican obstructionists today have disrespected the system, turned their back on the process, and taken the coward's way out.

As scores of young women begin new jobs post-graduation-- for many their first summer in an office-- they face a workplace where they will undoubtedly be challenged, though hopefully not by unwanted advances. Those ways in those days decades ago would strike most young women today as unbelievably shocking.
It was during the Clarence Thomas/Anita Hill hearings for Thomas's nomination to the Supreme Court, when Anita Hill was forced to make her accusations against Clarence Thomas' sexual harassment, with absolutely nothing to gain and everything to lose.
HBO'sConfirmation captures a lot of the electrifying and byzantine battle, especially the cowardice of Joe Biden, who could have done so much more to help Hill and stand up to the GOP, stand up for truth.
Hill's recollection of incidents in which Thomas, her superior, had professed his interest in bestiality porn and Long Dong Silver, was a sobering wake-up call to members of the generation that had both endured the fanny-slapping Mad Men era and given rise to the women's-rights movement.
The president has named a superbly qualified, scrupulous, evenhanded judge. Not a mere partisan operative, but a judge.
Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is the George H. W. Bush appointee who hasn't asked one single question in court since 2006. That's 10 years the man has just sat there -- mute, mum, silencio, clammed up, hushed, voiceless, unheard and zipped up.
