Tomorrow's News Today - 2

Tomorrow's News Today---Sonia Sotomayor will be confirmed in July before the August recess and will become only the third female justice on the U.S. Supreme Court and the first Hispanic. The vote will be in the 65 - 35 range with a handful of republican senators crossing party lines to vote for confirmation. Her confirmation comes despite her most controversial decision on the U.S. 2nd Court of Appeals regarding the New Haven, Conn. fire department, being recently overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court in a split, 5 to 4 decision with the deciding vote in that ruling coming from Justice Anthony Kennedy, who sided with the court's 4 conservatives.

On a lighter note Mr and Mrs Frank Lynn Jefferson of 1776 Independence Way, Patriot Valley, USA are the proud new parents of twin girls, Liberty and Belle. Liberty and Belle arrived a few minutes after midnight this July 4, 2009. Both girls are doing fine according to Dr Wright Wey, the attending physician.

Love the lighter note news, ha.

Yes Sotomayor will be in without much ado, unfortunately.
