Dear Sisters, I take issue with one of the statements about racism/sexism. I am white. I am also 81 years old. For nearly all of those years I have seen racism, including by members of my own family. When I was a little kid, I felt some sexism in my own family. Sexism against me, as a female. It is true that the racism was more overt and the sexism was more subtle. Thanks for reading this.

EVERY SINGLE THING THAT COMES FROM THE SUPREMELY CORRUPT COURT, EVEN WHEN IT SEEMS TO BE A LOWER LEVEL OF DISGUSTING, IS SELF SERVING IN SOME WAY!! (progressive judges excepted from this comment)

@31:40: Joyce is some sort of Pavlovian imbecile. Even when "Alabama" is mentioned merely in relation to (the likewise imbecillic) Sen. Tubberville, Joyce has to blurt, "Roll tide!" What exactly does that idiot think she's conveying when she does that? It wasn't even about the "University" of Alabama.

OMG! I worked at the Anchor Bar! In the late 60s. Leo Derderian owned it. A newspaper bar. I was a waitress.

@1:06:26: What an impressively arrogant, self-involved, obnoxious, rude, condescending statement. Kim's request, just prior, was much better stated (i.e., as a matter of efficiency rather than haughty direction). That single statement dropped my regard for Joyce several pegs... and I was already underwhelmed by her legal analyses (which nearly always take the form of restating the question several times over, offering an inane platitude or two, and then saying, "We'll see--Roll Tide!").

This podcast is a play-by-play of the judicial branch's self-immolation. The entire 3rd branch of government has followed the examples of the first and second in throwing off all pretense and destroying its own legitimacy in a bonfire of petty tribalism. The GOP has long been the anti-civilization party. That cancer has metastasized in the cancerous pustules of Thomas, Alito, et al.

Completely missing from this discussion is the fact that states elect delegates to the Electoral College, not an individual nominee.

Dear SIL, This is the reason I won't buy an iPhone. I have had a cellphone since the late 90s. I think I had a Nokia then. But now that I have a newer phone, I have been buying anything but IPhone. I've had Motorolas and now a Samsung. I'm the only person I know who doesn't have an iPhone. I really dislike monopolies. Love your podcasts.

On Willis/Wade: such a sham outrage: when the judge asks the defence attorney, which facts or how would he point to misconduct (of F.Willis), his answer is "You know it when you see it". Would any judge accept that as a legal standard? The strongest argument Mr Abbate brought up was: if they had some kind of a scheme going on, wouldn't Willis/Ware want the case to go slowly,so they could profit longer? Instead, they pressed for speed (because of election years etc). Looks like case closed
