To The Daily Sun,
When I was in high school in Florida, sometime in the years 1959-1962, I attended a couple of parties at which I actively participated in a game we then called “spin the bottle.”
Participants from both sexes (there were only two at that time) were all voluntary as far as I know, and there were no alcoholic beverages served or consumed (the drinking age then in Florida was 21 and none of us had the knowhow to make fake IDs).
But I did it. I participated.
And a couple of times I was lucky enough for the bottle to land on me when spun by a girl and, under the “rules,” she and I then retired to an adjacent “private” area, a closet I seem to recall, to engage in what I now recall to be a very chaste closed-mouth kiss or two, returning to the group being very proud of ourselves and becoming the recipients of a lot of kidding from our peers.
Based on this confession of my long-ago sins, I hereby withdraw from consideration of any appointments to the Supreme Court, U.S. or otherwise.
