Welcome to Ledocs World

I would like to have heard Judge Sotomayor address the charge that her speech that averted to a “wise Latina woman” was an example of “relativism run amok.”  There was a form of relativism implied, but was it running amok?  I think not.  The alternative of the originalists cannot be sustained, it must crumble under its own weight, or better, under the weight of historical exigencies.
