Ivy League Warrior

Ah, if only Justice Stevens could have stood beside Clarence Thomas in protecting the ivied walls of Yale from the Viet Cong. Thomas took the extraordinary step of reading his dissent of the Hamdan decision from the bench to explain to Stevens what it's like to see the horrors of war. From ACSBlog:

(Ironically, Justice Thomas refers to Justice Stevens’ “unfamiliarity with the realities of warfare”; but Stevens served in the U.S. Navy from 1942 to 1945, during World War II. Thomas’s official bio, by contrast, contains no experience of military service.

Please, it was the Navy. You're on a ship. Thomas was busy storming the mean streets of New Haven, Connecticut.
