Staten Island's Supreme Inferiority Complex Courted
In light of Manhattan's latest hometown hero spotlight, the New York Daily News went out to Staten Island to cajole residents into whining about not having a Supreme Court justice hail from their borough. They even got one to pull a "We are always left out of everything!" To which the Daily News preemptively responds with a headline of "What does the Wu-Tang Clan have in common with Kagan, Sotomayor, Ginsburg & Scalia?" To which one can only thereafter respond: Old age, treachery, and trending away from being an activist court, the ability to protect one's mothafuckin' neck. [NYDN]
