Empathy: I don’t know that it ought to be a characteristic of a Supreme Court justice, but it surely ought to be a characteristic of a human being.

  1. I agree that empathy is an admirable human trait. It is probably be a quality a Supreme Court Justice should have. The empathy a jurist may feel however, should not deteriorate into favoritism.
    In life there are those who profess empathy in words, and those who live it in their actions. Too often they are distinct from one another.
