Hi everybody,

In the midst of the presidential primary fever, we turn toward the

apex of another branch of the U.S. government, and the hydra that

sits there, the nine-headed Supreme Court. Throughout its sordid

history, the Supreme Court has long defended corporate theft,

aristocratic greed and institutional racism. In this week’s Reno News

& Review feature story, University of Nevada, Reno journalism

professor Jake Highton cites the 10 most egregious decisions in the

history of the court. For contrast, he also excerpts from some of the

justices’ most eloquent dissents. In this week’s Green story, Ashley

Hennefer looks at options for spring breakin’ college kids that are

more environmentally helpful than drinking beer, flashing body parts,

and motorboating on Lake Havasu. And, in Arts & Culture, Marvin

Gonzalez laments the plight of the bald man.

As always, be sure to pick up a newsprint copy of the paper for

exclusive columns, cartoons and tactile sensations.

Thanks for reading! If it weren't for you, we’d be courting disaster.
