Another interesting Alito piece

In the Washington Post as well. "New Justice's First Challenge: Clap On or Clap Off":

Samuel A. Alito Jr., barely eight hours into his job as a Supreme Court justice, had to make a series of important rulings as he sat in the House chamber for last night's State of the Union address.

For instance: How enthusiastically would he applaud for President Bush? (More vigorously than Justice Stephen G. Breyer but less than Justice Clarence Thomas and about the same as the chief, John G. Roberts Jr.)

And: How would he react when Bush introduced him to Congress? (He would make a self-conscious grin.)
