I would like to express my deepest sympathy to Lloyd's family on behalf of my Mom - Lloyd's Aunt Martha. We had such great times at the family get togethers with all of our fellow cousins. My greatest memory of Lloyd was when I was about 10 and he came to Whitby and picked me up in his Volkswagon Beatle and took me to Toronto and I had my first ride on the subway. He was very kind to come and visit Mom in the nursing home and brought along his guitar and played some music for her. We all have such great memories of all the great times we had at Aunt Bea and Uncle Jerry's home.

It has been so saddening to hear of Lloyds passing. He will be greatly missed by his friends from Miracles through Christ. I thought of him as a good friend and a wonderful man of God. I am sure he will be singing with great joy in his new home in Heaven.
Forever and always in our hearts, you will be truly missed.
Debbie & Matt Lupton

I think there is a simpler eixoanatpln. A lot of it depends on what social circles the Justices end up in. No one wants to become an outcase from their existing social circles. Imagine Justice Ginsberg hanging out with her NOW buddies after voting to ban Roe v. Wade. There is no way.I worked in DC, if you are in with Republicans you don't generally hang out with Democrats - that's the way it is and vis-a-versa. Your friends and social groups become those in the same party. Republican appointed judges who had no prior job or social group in DC (Souter, OConner, Kennedy, Stevens) have all tilted to the left. They came in with a clean slate and did not have a prior Republican dominated social circle in DC. Their social circle was created after they became Judges or Justices, thus they were free to be aloof. In contrast, the ones who had previously worked in DC have stayed consistent (i.e. Thomas, Rehnquist, Roberts, Alito, Ginsberg, Scalia, Breyer).The secret, appoint someone from your party who is anchored in DC and has a pre-existing social group of like minded people. DONT APPOINT SOMEONE FROM OUTSIDE DC!I argued that Harriet Miers would stay conservative precisely for this reason. Miers had been in DC for five years. Her social group was other evengelical conservative Christians - they same group she had been with for 25 years in Texas. Miers was 60+. There is no way Miers was going to get a new group of friends. Therefore, there was no way she was going to all of a sudden rule in favor of Roe v. Wade or lean left in any way on the Court.
