It strikes me that the person who construes himself as a strict constructionist is the one driving the contemporary car (never mind an import), while Breyer drives the jalopy. Does this suggest a deeper reality lying beneath personalities? Speaking as a jalopy owner myself, I have to say that liberalism is often tied to nostalgia. Furthermore I have to protest against the suggestion that we might be more likely to dent another car. How do you think we’ve managed to keep cars long enough for them to become jalopies in the first place?

I wonder if you might update us more on what cars all the justices drive. I have a feeling that we might be able to tell a good bit about their personalities based on their choices. Really and truly, we need a full personality test, and I’m surprised this isn’t part of the initial confirmation process, a personality test that asks questions such as which Beatle is the justice’s favorite, which of the Seinfeld characters does he or she feel he most resembles, and whether or not said justice can remember the words to his or her college fight song. It has always been my opinion that you can tell a great deal about a person – and I don’t just mean such things as whether he’s liberal or conservative, based on these pieces of information. I think it has a lot to do with archetypes and the deep psychological drives inside of us that are manifested through these archetypes.
