In Context: Blinded by what we can see

This week, the Senate Judiciary Committee held hearings on the nomination of Ketanji Brown Jackson to be an Associate Justice on the Supreme Court of the United States. There was a day of opening statements, two days for the nominee to answer questions, and a day of supplemental expert testimony.

The Senate and the Supreme Court have been operating and interacting for more than 200 years, forming and adjudicating the words of our laws and their meanings. Americans have been able to read and hear how their laws are made for at least the latter half of that time.

In the last four decades, the function of Congress has been harmed by a change to its operations, and one Senator during this week's hearings reiterated his hope to prevent the same cause of dysfunction from being imposed on the Supreme Court.
