It's a great, great joy to be back here-to be back for this event, where I was the subject some years ago; to walk by the portraits of Ricky [Revesz] andJohn [Sexton], two remarkable deans; and most of all, to be here to honor Sonia, to honor Sonia. I've heard many quite correct descriptions of what makes Sonia the wonderful judge and human being that she is: great intelligence, empathy, grounding in facts and in her own remarkable life experience-and as those who were at the civil justice [know]-humor and humanity. They're all true.
