Sonia Sotomayor, whose ruling about nunchucks is part of this week's Jared Jacang Maher feature article about Thornton cop Kevin Orcutt's police-oriented nunchaku design, hasn't been officially confirmed as a Supreme Court justice at this writing; Senate president Harry Reid has called for a vote at 1 p.m. mountain time. But there's so little suspense about whether or not she'll be approved that the Colorado Latino Forum and the Colorado Hispanic Bar Association has scheduled a private bash tonight to honor her accomplishment. And according to former state senator Polly Baca, the event's organizer, Sotomayor will take time out of her own personal celebration to phone the folks whooping it up in Colorado on her behalf.
