9. The Constitution Don't Mean Shit: Clarence Thomas in his Own Words

Beachwood editor Steve Rhodes: "Is this for real? If it is, I'd love to use it in Booklist. I don't have to mention her name, though we would mention the course and school."

Adamek: "Naw, I made it up. I wish it was real. [She] was bitching about how dumb some of her textbooks were and we started brainstorming."

Rhodes: "I just think it's funny, would like to find a way to use."


Just did.
