In Response to: Identity Politics

The cover story (April 2) about Randall Kennedy ’77 did a good job of capturing a man who is comfortable in his own skin, confident that no one means him harm, and thus is not offended by what others say. What it failed to reflect, however, is his humility and humanity. Kennedy’s willingness to probe difficult issues without political agenda or ego is what we should expect of — yet too often fail to find in — our Supreme Court justices.
