There’s an old joke about a little boy who doesn’t talk. Though his parents try everything, including medical specialists, hypnotists, psychiatrists, but nothing will make the kid talk. His life is otherwise normal—he goes to school, plays with his friends, is a member of a Little League team. But he never says a word. One day, when the boy is 10, his mother serves him soup for lunch. “The soup is cold,” the kid says. “Oh, my God!” the mother says. “You can talk! Why haven’t you said anything before?” “Until now,” the kid says, “everything’s been OK.” What I’m saying is, has anyone checked Justice Thomas’s soup?
