* Latest Kagan vita rundown: Annie Wagner (an acquaintance) in The Stranger.

* I'm with Eric Zorn and veteran SCOTUS reporter Linda Greenhouse: Kagan's better served going back to her 1995 belief, when she was at the University of Chicago, that Supreme Court nominees should skip the "judicious silence" approach to tiptoeing through confirmation hearings. Greenhouse has some good questions she'd like to see Kagan answer. As Wagner puts it: "Senators should quote liberally from this priceless book review, and make Kagan tell them how the Constitution ought to be interpreted."

* If you are a politically powerful woman with ambiguities in your personal life, Andrew Sullivan would like to sniff your panties.

Update: The Judiciary Committee's site from her solicitor-general confirmation hearings is a goldmine of Kagan documentation.
