I was very pleased to see the letter from 54 Class of ’82 women (PAW, July/August 2022) expressing their dismay at the (then pending) reversal of the Roe v. Wade decision and supporting the views Class of ’72 women had expressed in June.

I share their dismay. In fact, I am appalled and deeply embarrassed at the role played by classmate Sam Alito ’72 in the Supreme Court decision.  

Unfortunately, Alito probably now cares little about Princeton or the opinions of other Princetonians. He is not listed in the Alumni Directory online, and on the Supreme Court webpage [7], he is the only justice who does not mention where he got his undergraduate degree.
