If you follow the Supreme Court, you'll have seen stories about Justice Clarence Thomas who for almost seven years has been silent during court proceedings--no questions, nothing. He has, it turns out finally spoken. Don't worry. it won't help. No one is sure what he said
It happened so quickly, the Washington Post said, that some thought he never spoke at all. The paper has Thomas saying, "Well…he did not…." Hope that's enough for you. It's all there is.
