Terry McMillan, others worry Supreme Court justices ‘too old’


Imagine how excited author Terry McMillan will be to learn she and José Canseco share the same outlook on the Supreme Court. Canseco’s afraid SCOTUS will “act its age” rather than embrace change, and it seems McMillan, 61, also thinks that it takes younger minds to keep up with a changing America. Funny how few celebs complained that SCOTUS had too much power when it upheld Obamacare.

If the justices decide to strike down Proposition 8 and DOMA as unconstitutional, will they still be considered “too old” (and white, and male)? We’ll have to wait and see.

So many old, frightened men making old, frightened decisions. #SCOTUS #northdakota

Hey, SCOTUS! If you nine old farts don’t want to make the tough decisions, try resignation instead!
