Justice Breyer on Retirement: ‘People Say Mean Things’

‘It’s far from the worst thing in the world to have people say mean things or nice things’

EXCERPT:

BREYER:  "I was thinking of Harry Truman, if it’s too hot, get out of the kitchen or something like that. It’s far from the worst thing in the world to have people say mean things or nice things or this thing or that thing about you. And really, if you’re not prepared, of course people will get upset about all kinds of things. That’s why we have this First Amendment. We have it there so people will say things that you might not like and that I might not like. That’s why it’s there."
