After John Paul Stevens, there is no representation on the Court of graduates from law schools other than Yale or Harvard.

The show is obviously part of WNYC's effort to skew towards a younger 20-something demographic. (A smart strategy if the station is to remain a viable concern for years to come.) The quiz questions are often quite clever. Unfortunately, they often have--what I assume is the unintended consequence--of revealing this demographic's extremely limited knowledge of anything outside their own immediate sphere of experience. Anything that happened prior to their arrival on the planet? Forget it: They don't know it. If it hasn't been tweeted about, it didn't happen. So, while listening to the show can be quite enjoyable, it's sometimes leaves me feeling a bit distressed about a future in the hands of people of such limited curiosity.

Ha! You *do* bong hits or tabs of acid, as memory served. Beers, you just drink.

Brian,

Hmm. Could you give me the list of people with opposing viewpoints who appeared on today's show?

Or is today's balance being provided by this quiz show?
