Thomas and Kagan should both recuse themselves.
If Kagan does, then Thomas should. Or if Thomas does, then Kagan should. Both have interests in the case, but as it stands now, their votes cancel themselves out.

The key here is that for both of them, the questioning of their impartiality in this case is not unreasonable in any way, shape, or form.

There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged.

I am kind of torn, especially on the Clarence Thomas issue. What does it matter what his wife thinks? And quite frankly, believe it or not, they are all human so they all have their biases about these cases. Being a good judge is about putting those biases aside and coming to the right conclusion. So, in my opinion, both of them should be able to preside over this ruling.
