A forum for Princeton residents to express opinions about local and national issues
Question of the Week: "What are your views on John Roberts being named the Supreme Court nominee?"
"I heard David Boies speak about him on TV the other day and I think that if he is good enough for Boies, as he said, then he is good enough for me."
Irene Rhodes, Sayre Drive
"I don't know enough about him yet so I haven't decided. I think that I am scared about anyone Bush would nominate but this man is still an unknown quantity. "
Alexandra Roth, Poe Road
"I don't like him. I don't know much about him but the first thing I heard I don't like. He is an extremely conservative judge. He is very active in not simply interpreting the Constitution but trying to push certain parts. His wife is even more conservative than he is and usually the wife dominates."
Bruno Bosacchi, Princeton University
"I think that this decision was made on November of last year when the election was over. We should be relatively happy that this man is intelligent and apparently reasonable. We should save our ammunition for the next nominee."
Irwin Rosenblum, Governors Lane
"I think that he looks pretty good but I'm waiting to see what the committee will find out. I think that he will follow the Bush line and I am cautious about his Roe v. Wade issue and what he will ultimately say about that."
Judith Tallerman, Wrangel Court
