Can You Name the 9 US Supreme Court Justices?

by Joey deVilla on December 22, 2004

[via MetaFilter] According to a recent survey of “a representative sample of 1000 adults nationwide [America]”, two-thirds couldn’t name any of the justices of the US Supreme Court.

I wonder how many of the same people surveyed can name any winners of the Survivor reality TV series.

(I’m not American, and I can name two-thirds of the Justices.)

Ugh, I sure can’t name them all.

Clarence Thomas

Anthony Scalia

William Renquist

Sandra Day O’Connor (she’s still on, right?)

Ruth Bader Ginsberg

– Souter

p.s. I’m a US-ian.

That is partially by the Supreme Court Judge’s intent. They are the only branch of government who can walk the street unrecognized. They were the last branch to have an official website too.
