Turns out Justice David Souter is an outdoorsman who wants to get in more hours on the dirt. From today’s New York Times:
Friends said Thursday evening that he had often spoken of his intentions to be the court’s first retirement if Mr. Obama won the election last fall. He told friends he looked forward to returning to New Hampshire while he was young enough to enjoy climbing mountains and other outdoor activities.
Nice to see the guy’s finally getting his priorities in order. (I’ll start working on mine just as soon as I get one of those sweet lifetime appointments).
