Impact of Souter's Retirement

Supreme Court Justice David Souter is leaving the bench in June. The possibility of replacing a justice was a hot campaign topic. And one President Barack Obama often spoke of.

Now that campaign promise is a political reality. So how will this play out? Fredricka Whitfield spoke with a law professor at Pepperdine University on how this will play out.

    The picture of the storm that hit the Dallas Cowboy training bubble is a perfect example of a downburst. i'm a retired forecaster with 40 years of experience.

    Swine Flu- Maybe off subject but i had to get this off my chest. The Airlines have been negligent with the upkeep (in terms of cleaniness)of their aircraft prior to this outbreak... For awhile now i try to touch little as possible on the plane when i fly because you can see that its nasty and has not been wiped down in years! So when i see the flying public with masks on, that does little to assuage my anxiety. The Airlines will have to come with more than just a mask ... they need to try Pinesol and bleach! I have not seen those adjustments made to their operation so i will opt to drive instead. Yuck!!

    Why not Anita Hill?? She's a woman of color - and it would be the ultimate antidote to the Clarence Thomas/Antonin Scalia hubris ...
