Clarence Thomas Claims His Law Degree Is Worth Only 15 Cents

Is that with or without inflation, Clarence?
in the 1970s for his difficulty finding a job after he graduated.
Some of his black classmates say Thomas needs to get over his grudge because Yale opened the door to extraordinary opportunities.
Wait. You defaced your own law degree? From Yale? And it's only worth 15 lousy cents? Hell, just typing the word "Yale" cost me $45,000, not counting books and living expenses.
The conservative justice says he initially considered his admission to Yale a dream, but soon felt he was there because of his race. He says he loaded up on tough courses to prove he was not inferior to his white classmates but considers the effort futile. He says he was repeatedly turned down in job interviews at law firms after his 1974 graduation.
Now, Clarence. A smile goes a mile, but a frown brings you down.
Thomas says he stores his Yale Law degree in his basement with a 15-cent sticker from a cigar package on the frame.
You smoke 15-cent cigars? And you poo-poo a Yale law degree? This is the kind of judgment we get from a Supreme Court justice? I've witnessed 3-year-olds near light sockets with better reasoning.
