Firefighters Frank Ricci and Ben Vargas testified today. Vargas has what I would consider the more powerful of the two testimonies because he talks about how hard he worked and mentions that even though he is Latino (Vargas failed to mention if he was wise), he became a victim of Sotomayor's race statistics. At the very end, Vargas applauds Supreme Court Justice Alito and says the firefighters did not ask for "sympathy or empathy" but a fair shake. Indeed.
