A Strange Five-Year Anniversary

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas last asked a question during oral argument on February 22, 2006, during a death penalty case.  The Sunday New York Times for February 13, 2011 notes that, according to political science professor Timothy Johnson from the University of Minnesota, in the past 40 years no other justice has gone an entire term (and much less five terms) without speaking at least once during oral arguments.
