I think that at least one member of the Supreme Court should be an average schmoe with absolutely no legal training, but lots of common sense. My father is a truck driver and formerly a welder and a construction worker. He reads and writes at about the 8th grade level, but he's got common sense to spare. Someone like him would not have been duped by a bunch of legal mumbo-jumbo and come to the conclusion that the government should be able to seize his home via eminent domain, so that an office building could be put in its place. He probably would have jumped over the bench and kicked the lawyer's ass. I think we need that kind of fresh perspective on the bench.
