Michael McGough of the L.A. Times wrote a thoughtful piece detailing how Justice Thomas, through his concurrences and dissents, has carved out a niche for himself which distances him from his ideologically similar peers.

J. Thomas

Granted, the L.A. Times seems to take the time to point this out mainly in an attempt to demonstrate the weakness in the conservative majority’s reasoning on recent cases such as the “Bong Hits 4 Jesus” case. Nonentheless, still nice to see Justice Thomas getting some long-overdue jurisprudential accolades. I still am not totally comfortable with his silence during oral argument, but if and until I sit in one of those nine Seats, my opinion counts for naught.
