Some questions for Sonia Sotomayor .....

As the United States Senate begins to hold hearings on Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor. I hope that the Senators ask some probing questions of her affiliations with ethno centric racial groups like La Raza. Of course the Democrats are going to play dumb and lob softball questions at her. So it will be up to the Republicans to dig into her soul and see how impartial she can be on the bench. If I were able to ask some questions of Sotomayor I would ask her if she knows what group is represented by this flag:

It's the flag on the Puerto Rican Liberation Front. I would then follow up if she thinks these four "Latinos" from this group:

Rafael Cancel Miranda, Andrés Figueroa Cordero, Lolita Lebrón and Irvin Flores who on March 1 1954 entered the House of Representatives in Washington D.C. unfurled a banner and started shooting wounding 5 Congressmen. I would ask Ms. Sontomayor would she would consider these four latinos terrorists? I think her answer would be most interesting to know before the Senators vote on her nomination.
