We should hope English majors can analyze well and write well. Certainly, it's not always the result.

I couldn't say if Thomas is the most principled justice on the Court today or not. I do think judges should make oral arguments a valuable opportunity. Thomas, however, considers them pointless -- that the briefs answer all the questions and/or justices have made up their minds already.

Read Thomas' dissent in Virginia v. Black for a piece of legal analysis highly informed by cultural history. It is something to admire.
