So Supreme Court Justice David Souter is retiring according to NPR, opening up a spot on the high court. Did you know there is absolutely NO official qualification test or standard for someone to be nominated to the Supreme Court? It's true. Other offices have pre-set rules such as age, birthplace, etc. Anyone can be nominated to the Supreme Court of the United States of America. We were discussing this in a late night editorial/pizza eating/hockey watching meeting in the Jersey City Desk offices tonight. Intern and dancer (exotic not ballet) Kiki had a suggestion as to whom President Barack Obama should nominate. She thinks New Jersey should get some love (Actually MORE love as Antonin Scalia is a Trenton native) on the high court. Her suggestion?
