GUEST,Taliesn Harry Belafonte on L.K. show. Amazing! (69* d) RE: Harry Belafonte on L.K. show. Amazing! 17 Oct 02

"As for Thurgood Marshall, I once asked Juan Williams, who had just done a book on Marshall, to please name even one major decision that Marshall authored. He could think of none. .."

Well now you just hoh de doh right there , Rastas , because , for one damn thang we all gonna have to take that pontificatin' wid mo' dan a whollta grains of salt as you offer nothin' but just taking you're word fo' it : and on the internet yet. Yeah an' I be da Queen o' Sheba.

I'd much prefer to go to the source , as is my first resource of choice, as I'm sure I have the C-Span "Booknotes" session with Juan on his bio of ol' Thurgood on v-tape and that's precisely the kind of question Brian Lamb would ask.
"Scuse me ,Suh, fo' not just takin' yo words all face value-like.

" When you compare his writings with say, Scalia, he becomes almost inarticulate; maybe the snake comment was the best he could do..."

Yassuh, I guess po' ol' Thurgood was justa standin' in de shaddah of that other Supreme Court illuminati, Clarence.
Man I bets y'all can can just testify to the heavens on ol' bright shinin' Clarence's writings.

So lay it on us, Reverend Claymo',de assembled congegation awaits yo' dissitations with bated breath ;-)
