John Paul Stevens In Picture And Song
posted by Dan Filler
If you haven’t heard this Air America spoof of Hang on Sloopy – retitled Hang on Stevens – it’s worth a click. I can’t imagine that Stevens, a Republican (OK, a Hyde Park Republican, but still…) would have predicted this fate 30 years ago.
And if you haven’t yet seen this wonderful childhood photo of the Justice at his dad’s hotel (known, eponymously, as The Stevens, but since transformed first into the Conrad Hilton, and later the Hilton Chicago, and shown at right) take a look. According to this article, he’s the kid on the left.
UPDATE: It seems that you can’t create a permanent link to the photo. To see an enlarged version go here and search keywords for “Stevens Hotel Two Boys”. The photo is entitled “two young boys playing a games, sitting at a small table in a playroom at the Stevens Hotel.” But the picture actually has three boys, and the aformentioned descriptive sentence actually has a grammatical error.
UPDATE 2: I’ve altered the pictures so that everyone can now see both the kid-pic and the hotel.
