Go get ‘em Justice Sotomayor
Sonia Sotomayor, center, got a fond sendoff Friday from friends and neighbors as she departed from her Greenwich Village home for Washington, D.C., for confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court the next day. At Blue Ribbon Market across the street — where Sotomayor is known for buying her favorite, sturgeon on toast, or sometimes just breadsticks and a decaf — Sasha Acosta and Milcar Cruz said “Sonia mania” continues. “People come in here asking for ‘the judge toast’ or ‘the Sotomayor toast’ — I’d say, almost once a day,” Acosta said on Monday. “One couple wanted coffee and breadsticks. They were very New Yorky. They said, ‘We’re on the Sotomayor tour!’ We didn’t have any breadsticks, so they left.”
