Robert Downey, Jr.
When Whitney Houston died, I felt great sadness. My sadness, of course, was about our collective loss - when you listened to this nightingale sing, your body would drop into a chair, your head would tilt up, a small smile would creep across your face, and inside you knew that there was a higher power somewhere: gifted, beautiful, spiritual.
The Supreme Court's only armor is the cloak of public trust; its sole ammunition, the collective hopes of our society.
