In Case You Were Wondering

For your information and contemplation on this Wednesday morning unlike any other, the age of each member of the United States Supreme Court:

Roberts: 53
Stevens: 88
Scalia: 72
Kennedy: 72
Souter: 69
Thomas: 60
Ginsburg: 75
Breyer: 70
Alito: 58

This is all fine and good. But the real issue is how much each of these justices like their work and their colleagues. For pretty much each of these nine, the answer is "a lot" and "a lot".* So don't go expecting five SCOTUS retirements or anything.**

*Totally uninformed guess!
**Expecting one or two retirements? More reasonable.
