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.
