  1. Sounds like a fascinating symposium. I have always pondered the “What If” question with respect to a few big Supreme Court cases. Please keep me posted.

    Great idea for a symposium. On the one hand, there are decisions that truly transformed the course of American history and politics. Brown v. Bd. of Educ.; Reynolds v. Sims; Steel Seizure Case. Equally interesting, on the other hand, there are some “cannonical” cases that could have come out differently without leading to a world all that different today. Please keep me posted too…

    You should see if you can get permission to use an image of “The Watcher”

    in the journal, like those old Marvel “What if…” comics.

    What a fantastic idea for a TV show. Like “You Are There.” Walter Cronkite would have been the perfect narrator, but I think Charlie Gibson would do pretty well.

    BTW, I am not kidding around about this. I really mean it.
