Dear Rob: In your lame attempt to explain your opposition to President Obama nominating a successor to Antonin Scalia you said:
"I believe the best thing for the country is to trust the American people to weigh in on who should make a lifetime appointment that could reshape the Supreme Court for generations."
A majority of Americans have already weighed in, twice, by electing Barack Obama. It was in all of the papers.
