A supremely incurious Supreme Court Justice

well, well, this is a pretty staggering revelation...
The last time [United States Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas] asked a question in court “was Feb. 22, 2006, in a death penalty case out of South Carolina.”

so's this...
A recent tally by McClatchy Newspapers underscored this point: Thomas has spoken 281 words since court transcripts began identifying justices by name in October 2004. By contrast, Thomas' neighbor on the bench, Justice Stephen Breyer, has uttered nearly 35,000 words since January.

(thanks to think progress...)
