History and the Supremes


Following up on yesterday's entry, sometimes the Supremes get the itch to get around too.  Justices Breyer and Scalia like to do a dog and pony discussion upon occasion, and their latest, from last night, can be seen on C-Span-1 this Saturday at 7 pm.  I'm told that it was a lively and excellent dialogue (in which the moderator could get nary a word  in edgewise).  See http://www.law.com/jsp/article.jsp?id=1202446718310&src=EMC-Email&et=editorial&bu=Law.com&pt=Law.com%20Newswire%20Update&cn=LAWCOM_NewswireUpdate_20100324&kw=Breyer%20and%20Scalia%20Take%20Their%20Road%20Show%20Inside

The sponsor of the program was the Supreme Court Historical Society, a great group (take a peek at supremecourthistory.org – they even have gift items!).  I went to a dinner of theirs in DC upon which I blogged a while back, chock-a-block with almost every Justice attending.  Our own Ralph Lancaster is the President of the Society.  If you want to know anything about the history of the Supreme Court, this is the source.
