  •  Yesterday, during the ridiculous fertility dialog (8+ / 0-)

    Kagan tells Scalia to just STFU:

    JUSTICE KAGAN: No, really, because if the
    couple -- I can just assure you, if both the woman and
    the man are over the age of 55, there are not a lot of
    children coming out of that marriage.
     (Laughter.)

    society's interest in responsible procreation isn't just
    with respect to the procreative capacities of the couple

    don't you think?
     JUSTICE KAGAN: Well, I just asked about
