Sandra Day O'Connor is an Arizona native, growing up on a ranch and practicing law, serving as a state legislator, Superior Court Judge and Court of Appeals Judge in Phoenix. In additon to the new federal Courthouse, the law school at Arizona State University is also named for her.
Although she has retired from the U.S. Supreme Court, Justice O'Connor remains very active in Arizona. The house where she used to live has been moved to the campus of Arizona State University and she founded the O'Connor House project, which gathers civic leaders in her old house to brainstorm on solutions to community and government problems.
This week we are showing photos of Canadian Thanksgiving on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
