Today’s News: Supreme Court nominee, Elena Kagan

Just as we saw after Justice Sotomayor was nominated, the web is teeming with pro- and anti-Kagan articles, blog posts and anecdotes.  Times like these demonstrate how incredibly valuable the quick-to-press, divergent view, blogging model has become.
