During her debut performance on the Supreme Court bench Monday, Sonia Sotomayor asked more questions in one hour than Clarence Thomas did over the course of several years, according to McClatchy News Service.
The famously taciturn Thomas went for two entire years — or 144 consecutive cases — without making a single statement, the AP reported in 2008.
By contrast, Sotomayor on Monday asked as many questions as Chief Justice John G. Roberts, according to the Washington Post.

From The Trail at The Washington Post:
Sen. John McCain took in a New York Yankees game today with his friend and onetime primary rival, Rudolph Giuliani, and it turned out that Hizzoner, and not the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, drew the bulk of the crowd’s attention.
