Scalia too.

And John is a common name, but not for middle names.  And not as common anymore.  Out of the 12 justices named John, 9 were before 1900.

I was 7 at the time (and living in a highly republican area), so I don't really have a recollection of those stickers.

I'm fairly certain one of the Supreme Court Justices' middle name was Vlad... can't recall which one.  Oh yeah, I think it's the one that used to impale people on stakes.

And a Yale thong?  :)  By the way, I went to the Yale bookstore's website but couldn't find underwear.  Very sad.

An interesting tidbit I noticed when checking out middle names:
"Collectively, the entire bench holds seven degrees from Stanford and four from Harvard. Justices Stevens and Thomas are the only ones who have not attended either of those two schools."
(Stevens - BA Chicago, JD Northwestern
Thomas - Conception Seminary, JD Yale)

Maybe I can buy the plain white cotton thong from VS and have it embroidered or otherwise decorated with the Yale name.
