"Justice is not about abstract legal theory, nor some footnote in a dusty casebook.  It’s the kind of life experience earned outside the classroom and the courtroom; experience that suggests he or she views the law not only as an intellectual exercise, but also grasps the way it affects the daily reality of people’s lives in a big, complicated democracy, and in rapidly changing times. " – President Obama, writing on SCOTUSblog. 

Just yesterday, I was bemoaning the fact that what separates today's politicians from the founding fathers is not their calumnous nature, their personal attacks, or their populist outrage, but the fact that they're tweeters, talkers, not writers.

Perhaps I was wrong. Or perhaps Obama is just the last writer president (Trump's Art of the Deal does not count).
