A Circle of Life Kinda Day

In 1787, Benjamin Franklin wondered if the sun painted on the President's chair at the Philadelphia convention was rising or setting.  On Monday, the answer is both.

Beginning at 10:00 am ET, the Supreme Court will issue its last decisions of the Term and Justice Stevens will leave the federal bench after almost forty years, five with the Seventh Circuit and nearly thirty-five with the Supreme Court.  Then, at 12:30 pm, the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings for his replacement, nominee Elena Kagan, will start.
