news know that President Obama has nominated Sonia Sotomayor to
replace Souter on the Supreme Court.

She is being hailed as the first Hispanic justice. But that isn't
so.

One of the brightest legal minds ever was Benjamin Cardoza who
served on the court from 1932 until his death in 1938.

Ben was descended from Portuguese Jews who arrived in the New World
in about 1740. By every possible definition, Cardoza was Hispanic.


This deserves wide circulation.

"Sonia Sotomayor, who would become the first Hispanic, and third woman,
on the Supreme Court."
