Fair warning, this has nothing to do with advertising or marketing. I don’t know whether it was that my father was a lawyer or what but I’ve been fascinated with workings of the U.S. Supreme Court since I was a teenager.  In this past Sunday’s New York Times Magazine, there is a fascinating article on Justice John Paul Stevens.  Often seen as the most liberal justice on the court, Stevens was actually appointed by President Ford in 1975 — and he sees himself as no liberal.  The article raises interesting questions about what is liberal, or conservative, or activist when it comes to a Supreme Court justice.
