Quote of the Day: She Really Is a Wise Latina!

It was a long time ago, and a funny story. For the record, neither one of us used Quaaludes.

Kevin Noonan, Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s ex-husband, commenting on the gift he presented to his ex-wife, then a Yale Law student, on their wedding night: a bag of disco biscuits. Sotomayor claims she refused to pop the pills, and instead suggested that her husband flush them down the toilet.

(The anecdote appears in Justice Sotomayor’s forthcoming memoir, My Beloved World (affiliate link), scheduled for publication next month.)
