Fun Facts About John Paul Stevens

For some reason I find this little tidbit fascinating: if Supreme Court John Paul Stevens is replaced by someone who is not a Protestant, for the first time in our history our Supreme Court will be completely made up of non-Protestants.

Currently, we have 6 Catholics, 2 Jews, and 1 Protestant serving on the Supreme Court.

I also find it interesting that although John Paul Jones was born more than a quarter century AFTER John Paul Stevens, Jones retired from Led Zeppelin in 1980, more than a quarter century BEFORE John Paul Stevens retired from the Supreme Court. I'm sure that this says something profound about the lifestyles of rock stars and Supreme Court justices.
