Thomas devoted 6 pages of his 58 page concurrence to attacking Jackson's dissent..

It has a near mocking tone to it, especially the way he keeps referring to her by name. He effectively accuses her of discriminating against Asians, and seems to suggest in one of his hypotheticals that she would discriminate against - wait for it - a grandchild of Holocaust survivors.

And what about members of the numerous other racial and ethnic groups in our Nation? What about Anne, the child of Chinese immigrants? Jacob, the grandchild of Holocaust survivors who escaped to this Nation with nothing and faced discrimination upon arrival?

Then there's this:
JUSTICE JACKSON then builds from her faulty premise to call for action, arguing that courts should defer to “experts” and allow institutions to discriminate on the basis of race.

Make no mistake: Her dissent is not a vanguard of the innocent and helpless. It is instead a call to empower privileged elites, who will “tell us [what] is required to level the playing field” among castes and classifications that they alone can divine.

Thomas, Toga-boy in good standing of the Bohemian Grove, is of course quite familiar with privileged elites.

If interested, his Jackson 'critique' begins on pdf page 97, as section B. (The pdf includes everyone's 'contribution'.)

This week, New Jersey's Seton Hall U. gave out baccalaureate diplomas to 1,386 humans - and one dog.

When graduating senior Grace Mariani rolled up in her wheelchair to receive her diploma, she was escorted by her service dog Justin, who had regularly accompanied her to her classes. Dr Joseph E. Nyre, the University's President, had a surprise for them: After handing Grace her leather bound diploma, he presented Justin with one of his own (the rolled-up version).

There was a moment of uncertainty when Justin, with Joseph Cardinal Tobin, Archbishop of Newark and University Board Chairman, looking on, cautiously sniffed the diploma. Satisfied, he then graciously accepted it, to the delight of all (especially Dr Nyre).

Putin likely expected his very own Anschluss..

.....Poor poor Pootie. Look at what he couldn't have.

I assume that Medvedchuk is nailing all of his windows shut as we type.

On the afternoon of 12 March 1938, Hitler rolled into Austria en route to Vienna with a 4,000-strong 'body guard'. Once there, he would declare the creation of Greater Germany. 200,000 Viennese turned out to hear him.(An actual Wehrmacht army battalion had invaded earlier that same day, but met no resistance.)

Cheering crowds greet the Nazis in Vienna.

Hitler announces the Anschluss on the Heldenplatz, Vienna, 15 March 1938:
