No they don't.

McClatchy headline...
Sotomayor's finances look a lot like the average person's
Let's get real. Judge Sotomayor is a single woman with about 70% equity in a million dollar Manhattan condo, a piece of New York rental property, a primary income of $180k a year or so guaranteed for as long as she wants it (and avoids an impeachable felony), another $25k in pin money from a side job and a couple million set aside in a defined benefit pension.

She is, in other words, a wealthy person. Not as wealthy, perhaps, as Chief Justice Roberts, who came to the court with about $6 million in the bank, but her finances don't look anything like the "average person's".

Can we stop the silly now?
