Newly-confirmed Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett is getting right to work. The day after being confirmed and sworn-in during a White House event, Barrett will be at the court today to take the judicial oath administered in a private ceremony by Chief Justice John Roberts. After that, it's down to business with Barrett expected to start participating in proceedings and conferences right away.       Election Day is just a week away. The more than 60-million people who've already cast their ballots don't have to worry about anything else, except possibly tracking that ballot. But for those still waiting to drop it in the mail, today's an important day. The Postal Service is recommending everyone get their ballot in the mail by the end of the day regardless of individual state deadlines.       President Trump's tweet about mail-in ballots is being flagged by Twitter. The social media giant slapped a warning label on Trump's tweet yesterday that claimed there are "Big problems and discrepancies with Mail In Ballots all over the USA." The warning on Trump's tweet also says, "Some or all of the content shared in this Tweet is disputed and might be misleading."       The victims of the deadliest attack on the Jewish community in U.S. history are being remembered. Today is the second anniversary of the attack on Pittsburgh's Tree of Life synagogue. The attack killed eleven people.       California Governor Gavin Newsom is calling attention to racial bias in death penalty trials. Newsom filed a brief in the case of Donte Lamont McDaniel, who was sentenced to death in 2009 for the murder of two people. In the brief filed yesterday with the state Supreme Court, lawyers on behalf of the governor argue not requiring juries to agree on "aggravating factors" increases racial discrimination in death penalty cases.       Home prices are up. The S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller National Home Price Index says they jumped by five-point-seven-percent in August. The jump in the 20-City Composite came in at five-point-two percent.
