J.D. Trout ( Doctor of Law Trout?)at Loyola University Law School wants our next Supreme Court Judge to empathize!
I feel your pain.
On the Square.
Empathetic imagination isn't as necessary when you are looking at the real thing. So, high-minded theoretical debate can be window dressing. The real question is why injustice, suffering, illness and indignity has to touch us personally before we take it personally?
Let's have a Supreme Court Justice who was a police or fireman passed over on an exam because of Affirmative Action, or a middle class tax-payer saddled with three Catholic school tuitions.
Think that'll happen?
I feel not.
