The New York Times reports on Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson's high school experience. And we learn what she wrote in her yearbook. The past few years have taught us that a high school yearbook is one of the most important elements of any confirmation process.

Judge Jackson is the daughter of former public school teachers, a proven consensus builder, an accomplished lawyer, and a distinguished jurist. I was proud to make this call. pic.twitter.com/R9RhwT57DR

For those curious, in 2014, I collected the yearbook photos of other Justices. I have in my collection the yearbooks of Chief Justice Rehnquist, Justice Scalia, and Justice Ginsburg.
