Disagree, distinction with difference. To the casual observer one might believe from Racedo's post (since corrected) that there's no additional steps when that's clearly not the truth. Not everyone here is conversant on the pathway to SCOTUS and when an error in the process is noted it should be corrected. This isn't simply a matter of nitpicking Racedo's choice of wording, it corrected a falsehood.

It's now corrected, time to move on
