The HBO movie on the Hill/Thomas hearings was decent. Melissa-Harris Perry interviewed Anita Hill recently. At the time, I believed he didn't have the qualifications (EEOC head, short term federal judge) to be a justice. Cf. Souter's extended time as a state judge. I believe Hill but at some point you have to accept he's a justice; different then. Ultimately, we have to see this as a step in the extended path of justice including sexual harassment/equal justice. And, Thomas' use of race -- given his views -- comes off as real hypocritical.
