The Book of Justice

There was an interesting article in Slate on Friday about a book that is currently on the bestseller lists due in most part because of its endorsement by Rush Limbaugh. The book, entitled Men in Black: How the Supreme Court is Destroying America, by Mark Levine, has a title alone that is enough to make my stomach turn. Limbaugh’s association with it is the thing that makes me run for the bathroom. It is books like this that make me question the sanity and reasoning of a good portion of America. Also, last time I checked, there was a woman on the court so even the book’s title is faulty.

–Jane, couldn’t Levine come up with a title that did not steal off a movie?

    Well said. Actually, there are two women on the Supreme Court. Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sandra Day O’Connor.

    I guess to be technically correct I should change the last sentence, but I just meant to point out the obvious, that not all the Justices are men.

    The “title alone . . . is enough to make my stomach turn. Limbaugh’s association with it is the thing that makes me run for the bathroom. It is books like this that make me question the sanity and reasoning of a good portion of America”

    With all those well-established prejudices to support your judgments, have you bothered to read beyond the title?

    And, if not, what sort of librarian would that make you? The kind who can, I suppose, locate a book easily enough, but then chews on the cover?
