Glorious or Notorious?

The Washington Times reports today that the U.S. Supreme Court Justice with the highest name recognition is Clarence Thomas. 1 in 5 survey respondents were able to name him as a member of the High Court.

The article goes on to observe, however, that 3 out of 4 survey respondents correctly identified Larry, Moe and Curly as the Three Stooges.

His confirmation hearing certainly commanded more screen time than the other Justices. And he is the Justice the left loves to hate. That he is the most recognizable name on the Court is understandable. What is unfathomable is that the name is recognized by just one-fifth of respondents. I would hope at least that many could recognize the names of ALL the Justices.
