Perfect for heading into the weekend: check out this spirited New York Times diary by illustrator and writer Maira Kalman, who uses sketches and hand-written words to describe her recent trip to the U.S. Supreme Court.
During her trip, she talked to number of the high court notables, including Supreme Court Clerk William K. Suter (her sketch of him is an absolute doppelganger!) “He tells me, ‘In the Court your adversary is not your enemy,'” She writes. “How do people handle that? I wonder.”
On meeting Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, she writes: “She is petite and elegant. I think, move over Jane Austen as my imaginary best friend forever.”[HT: Jezebel]
