Candidate Sotomayor says she was influenced by Perry Mason
She doesn't say that her verdicts were based on the TV show, but she says that she was inspired to become an attorney because of the show.
I've always liked this series. Something very home spun about it, like Andy Griffith's different series. Hopefully that will carry over into her deliberations on The Big Bench. That she has already been approved a couple of times bipartisanly speaks volumes for her character and attitude. Maybe this will help the gay causes as well (you do know Raymond Burr was gay and had a partner/boyfriend for many many years, right??)
