NAW, that was Oliver Wendell Douglas, eating hotscakes!

BTW, Holmes was brilliant, unlike most of today's jurists!

Guffaw, I was thinking about Green Acres too - always do, when I hear Justice Holmes' name mentioned. :)

Ed, I'm now convinced there's nothing dumber than a congress.

NFO - agreed!
