The WaPo Is Helpful

In case you forgot that Justice Sonia Sotomayor was a fiery Latina, staff writer Robert Barnes is here to help:
Justice Sonia Sotomayor displayed no reticence on the first day of her first term on the court; in the two cases on the docket, she asked as many questions and made as many comments as Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr.
Ooh, uppity! I mean doesn't know her place! No, wait, I mean fiery! It's a compliment!
The only sign of her newness was that she at times forgot to turn on her microphone before posing a question.
Ha ha! Silly lady!
Sotomayor's active questioning was in tune with her reputation on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit in New York.
I heard she had a reputation for being fiery!

Sotomayor is also described as "an inquisitive new justice" and "far more active Monday than in her first hearing as a justice," as though she might be a dew-eyed extraterrestrial just learning to make her way on the lovely blue planet she now calls home.

Oh, pardon me: A fiery dew-eyed extraterrestrial.
