We have recently added the FIRST FEMALE, PUERTO RICAN Justice to the Supreme Court. Is anybody else tiring of these more and more obscure “firsts”? It was difficult to listen to Sotomayor’s confirmation testimony without feeling embarrassed, for it was littered with grammatical errors. It is extremely frustrating to listen to the individual who, in an attempt to impress others with a broad vocabulary, ends up looking foolish by mispronouncing words or using them in the wrong context. One should never use a large word when a diminutive one will suffice.
