    “justices could have averted a conflict if they had kept their investments in mutual funds rather than in individual stock, which are the most likely to trigger a conflict.” Good God, my brother used to do that when he was an investment manager, without anyone telling him to. And Supreme Court Justices don’t – that’s really rather shameful.
