Feeling like you need something to balance the scent of sandalwood and musk after reading this list of famous man caves
(including Jefferson's study, Douglass' office, Edison's library, and Roosevelt's trophy room)? If so, you may be interested in seeing the inner sanctums of some of history's most influential women. Check out Eleanor Roosevelt's living room (picture
), Marie Curie's laboratory (picture
), Margaret Mead's room in Samoa (picture
), Maya Angelou's parlor (picture
), Susan B. Anthony's study
(more pictures and info
), Georgia O'Keefe's sitting room (picture
), Helen Keller's childhood bedroom (picture
), and Frida Kahlo's studio (picture 1

For Comment: "Does personality override politics in the Rehnquist Supreme Court?"
File under: "What is the rhetorical and effective nature of constitutional interpretation and judicial review?" I have always been intrigued by the ways in which the justices of the Supreme Court selectively reveal tidbits about their personality and the nature of their interactions. "Scalia and Ginsburg are polar opposites, but are secretly best friends!" "O'Connor likes Georgia O'Keefe, and has several originals in her office!"
While much of this can be explained by the media creating a story where there is none, the above comments by Thomas lead me to wonder that, if 'opinion' is the form by which laws are reviewed, then perhaps 'individuality,' 'style,' or 'personality' have an impact on how the concept of justice and constitutionality are applied.
