Just As I Thought

You know there’s a metaphor here somewhere

You can make up your own joke bashing Bush’s Supreme Court picks and working in this little tidbit:

A basketball-sized piece of marble moulding fell from the facade over the entrance to the Supreme Court, landing on the steps near visitors waiting to enter the building.

No one was injured when the stone fell. The marble was part of the dentil moulding that serves as a frame for the frieze of statues atop the court’s main entrance.

A group of visitors had just entered the building and had passed under the frieze when the stone fell at 9:30 a.m. EST.

Jonathan Fink, a government attorney waiting in line to attend arguments, said, “All of a sudden, these blocks started falling. It was like a thud, thud.”
