A womanizer who supported unfettered access to abortion. Why doesn't that surprise me?
Can't wait to see the major coverage of these revelations on NBC, CBS and ABC </sarcasm>.
There is a conservative law professor at a prominent university who has a long-standing habit of referring to William O. Douglas as "William Zero Douglas."
Great post, thanks

Posner should be on the short list for SC nomination.
I do disagree though and do believe John Marshall to be a genius.

Bump for an outstanding review by an important legal scholar.
Douglas sounds a whole lot like Bill Clinton in this portrait. This is a book I have to read.

It is becoming more and more apparent that to be an icon or a titan of the left requires a person to get their morals, character, and integrity from a cesspool.
Douglas...became a member of the Securities and Exchange Commission and before long its chairman. His two years as chairman brought notable successes in efforts to regulate the stock exchanges and made him a hero of the second New Deal.
FYI Of the 10 worst stock market crashes in the 20th century fully 1/2 took place under FDR, the New Deal, and presumedly (Judge) Douglas. To wit:
#1) 4/17/30 - 7/8/31
#2) 3/10/37 - 3/31/38
#4) 9/31/29 - 11/13/29
#8) 9/12/39 - 4/28/42
#10) 9/7/32 - 2/27/33
The winds of time are continually shearing away the gilt of FDR's legacy.

Thought you'd appreciate this.
Thanks for posting it.
Once, when the dean of the law school was too drunk to find his way to the railroad station to catch a train to a city in which he was to give a speech, Douglas considerately drove him to the station--and put him on a train to a different city.
This IS funny!
