Last names are surrent S.Ct justices?
7.25.2005 12:20pm
John Neiman:
Even more than that: they're all first names of current Supreme Court justices. I can't think of anybody famous named "_________ Antonin," either.

Ulrich Bonnell Phillips:
They are not members of the Federalist Society.

anonymous coward:
According to tomorrow's Washington Post, unwitting members of the Federalist Society?
7.25.2005 12:21pm
Not members of Fed Soc = Don't drink blood
= Don't want to overturn Roe
= Have had no contact w/ J. Roberts

They are all men and are, or were, alcoholics;-)

Not good enough? OK. They can / could all play piano.

They were all former members of a boy band (that Babe sure could dance).

All right. I give.

Since I couldn't comment on that entry, I was surprised with the "Most common Supreme Court name" question, that among the examples of single-justice names was Ruth. I thought of two questions:

1)Are you telling me there was another Sandra?

2)Is Ruth really that much more of an unusual name than Salmon?

Who are three people who have never been in my kitchen?

Damn! Andy beat me to it!

Devin, he didn't say that those were the only examples of single-justice names. Those were just a few.

Ulrich Bonnell Phillips:
They've never been in my mother's kitchen.

Based upon Cliff Clavin's incorrect final jeopardy answer/question: "Who are three people who have never been in my mother's kitchen?"

not volo:
I have three

All are famous
All share last names with the first names of current scotus justices
All have had at least one experience with a member of the same sex (ok, maybe that is just number 1 and 4)

Well, Roman emperor Caracalla's real name was Marcus Aurelius Antoninus. Close enough, maybe.

Rich Rostrom (mail):
The fourth name is the salsa singer who married Jennifer Lopez. That's because the Roman politician's real name was Marcus Antonius.

If you want a more respectable Anthony, there's Susan B.
