“Justice Stevens is God”

I was adding categories to my posts and added one for “Justice Stevens”. The above title came to me in an echo of the “Eric Clapton is God” graffiti that used to cover London.

Sorry, Justice Stevens, but the person you succeeded, Justice William O. Douglas, deserves that title IMHO. After all, if it weren’t for him the C&O canal would be a parkway. He also wrote a Through-Hikers’ Guide to the Appalachian Trail. I hope he wouldn’t mind my biking the C&O rather than hiking it.

I’ll still call him “Wild Bill”.
