An aside came to mind when I read this: for which she wrote the majority opinion striking down a San Jose program that offered preferential treatment to businesses owned by minorities or women... . When I lived and worked in CA, my sister was working for a construction company that was actually entirely owned by a white male - who had put his Japanese wife on the books as the owner, president, etc., so he could get all the "minority" contracts.
Janice Brown sounds like a real possibility. Keep us posted. (Well, once they start trying to Bork her, I guess even the press will "keep us posted.")
