Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. - Cyril Connolly

Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me!
Who knew that Supreme Court Justices could be funny??

After a League of Women Voters meeting this morning (creating a League statement on same sex marriage in MD, - of course we're for it), I ran off to run errands. I was listening to "Wait Wait Don't Tell Me!" on WYPR, and the weekly segment of Not My Job featured none other than Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer. He had to hold his own against Paula Poundstone, Peter Sagal, Luke Burbank, and Mo Rocca. And he was FUNNY!

Being the funniest Supreme Court justice, he said, "is like being one of the shortest tall people."

On why he even agreed to answer questions outside his area of expertise in the humbling, and often embarrassing, "Not My Job" segment: "Well, it was my sister-in-law who wanted me to do it, and I wanted peace in the family."

I sat in the car at the dry cleaners listening to the whole segment. You can click on the link and listen to it there.
