Alito Associated With Death Of Civil Rights (Again)

For the second time, news about Associate Justice of the Supreme Court Samuel Alito coincides with the news cycle containing reports of the death of a major civil rights icon. Coretta Scott King died last night, the same day that the Senate refused to extend debate (by a vote of 72-25!) on the nomination of Samuel Alito to the United States Supreme Court. A few days after the death of Rosa Parks (October 25, 2005) President George W. Bush nominated Alito to the court (on Halloween!) Hmmm, is this coincidence or foreshadowing?
