Oldest U.S. Supreme Court Justices Not Thinking of Retiring in the Near Future: Chez Panisse, Alice Waters and Organic Food a Big Hit Among the Supremes

Mark Sherman of the Associated Press has a nice article at FindLaw on the Justices of the United States Supreme Court at SUPREME COURT NOTEBOOK: Justices staying put, writing that the oldest Justices on the court have no intention of retiring in the near future and discussing the impact of those intentions as regards the U.S. Presidency.
