or Nobel Prize economist, or Pulitzer-Prize winning author, or, who knows: Natalie Ilana Bernstein, born October 6, 2005, six pounds, eight ounces. Father is especially proud of mother, who resolved to labor naturally, and did so despite a forty-two hour labor and a posterior baby.
And regarding Supreme Court justices, David Bernstein of the VC has dubbed his new baby girl [Natalie] "a future Supreme Court Justice." If the Harriet Miers nomination doesn't work out, I think that Bernstein's daughter would definitely be on the short list. After all, she has no paper trail and would serve on the Supreme Court for a very long time, which seem to be the leading qualifications to be on the Court these days.
VC readers: I promise, that if confirmed, Natalie will offer Randy, Eugene, Jim, and Orin jobs as her first clerks, and let them write her opinions. Will someone please tell the White House that Natalie thinks that George W. Bush is the smartest person she ever met?
