Stop Trashing Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall

Ranking Republican Jeff Sessions (R- Ala)
As Sens. Jeff Sessions, Jon Kyl and John Cornyn disparaged the late Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall on the opening day of Elena Kagan's confirmation hearings, dismissing him as an "activist judge" in what appeared to be a raw attempt to score political points, I wondered: "Have you no sense of decency, at long last?"

Thurgood Marshall deserves respect and thanks, not sneers.
 Read the Stephanie Jones article in the Washington Post for some of the historic facts and hope that when Elana Kagan is confirmed to the Supreme Court that she brings some of the courage and insight of her mentor.

Stephanie J. Jones - Thurgood Marshall's legacy deserves cheers, not sneers
