Supreme Court

I've been spending a fair amount of time lately reading about the history of the Supreme Court and two articles appeared that provide some insight on the current Justices. One is an argument that John Paul Stevens is the most important Associate Justice in Supreme Court history based on his jurisprudence and the significance of his opinions in important cases. Another observes a recent commencement address by the retired David Souter whereby he generally characterizes his approach to the law as opposed to those who take an originalism philosophy (like Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas). Both are interesting, especially if you've read Jeffery Toobin's The Nine.
