Scalia Doesn't Only Hire White Male Catholics

If you follow who gets hired to clerk for Justice Scalia you'll have noted that it's often guys (yes, guys) who seem to be clones of himself demographically. But today Above the Law brings us word of his latest (and last) hire for the October 2008 term, and it turns out that next year his clerks will include two Orthodox Jews (including the handsome Moshe Spinowitz, pictured in the post). Lat also runs down where hiring for the next terms stands, Justices Stevens, Scalia, Thomas and Ginsburg have already hired all their clerks. David Souter has yet to hire any, as far as we know. Should we be worried about him retiring next year?
