Except for John Paul Stevens, who is retiring this summer, every justice of the U.S. Supreme Court is a graduate of Harvard or Yale law school.

As Timothy Egan blogs on The New York Times: “Enough with the Ivy Curtain. This club needs some air, or at least a breeze from another campus.”

While there’s much discussion about the need for diversity on the court - by gender, ethnicity, religion and range of legal experience, few have been courageous enough to call for an end to the Cambridge-New Haven chokehold.

Of course, the appointment will be made by President Obama, a member of the Harvard Law class of ‘91 and a former president of Harvard Law Review.
