1. Here's what I want to know
Does Roberts have to make the coffee and answer the door, or does Clarence still have to do that? I heard that Thomas was pleased that he would no longer be the new guy (who traditionally has to perform those chores) - but now that Roberts is Chief Justice, maybe he gets a pass and ole Clarence will still have to make the coffee. Heh heh.

3. Just a
cilice, a sharp chain worn around the leg, "the discipline" or flagellum, a small whip of knotted cords applied to one's back
and a huge crucifix under his robes.

5. I was wondering the same thing myself...
From what I understand, it seems only Renquist was the only Cheif Justice to sport those stripes... all the others chose to wear the simple black robe. Anyone else shocked by that? :eyes:

6. If he were a fan of Gilbert & Sullivan,
he'd go a long way to being tolerable in this poster's eyes.

As it is, he's another right-wing hack job.
