Presumably, Cabranes, a New Havenite, didn't feel like taking a chance on burning to death due to incompetent New Haven firemen.
Tuesday live update: Orrin Hatch is asking some tough questions about the Cabranes scandal, to which Sotomayor is not replying well, but now Sen. Hatch is rambling off into a speech instead of following up with tougher questions, and now has given up. And now it's time for lunch. Man, the action is just non-stop!
Anyway, I then had to go out and couldn't catch the thrill-packed conclusion of Tuesday hearings, so did anything interesting happen?
