Elena Kagan sworn in to Supreme Court, leaving Staten Island without a Justice

Elena Kagan was sworn into the Supreme Court yesterday, becoming the fourth woman to serve on the Court.

This also added another New York City-bred judge to the prestigious panel: Sotomayor (Bronx), Ginsburg (Brooklyn), Scalia (Queens), Kagan (Manhattan).

This prompted at least one person to ask the perennial question: What about Staten Island?

From the Palm Beach Post:
We need a Supreme Court justice from Staten Island... how can we fret over the ideological balance on the court when we have such an obvious slight to New York's fifth borough?
No, we don't. It doesn't really matter. We've got bigger problems like bias attacks, poor public transportation, Ferry crashes, an inept borough president, etc
