Justice: “Sorry, We’re Closed”
As of tomorrow, the Supreme Court is closed. Well, not the whole building; just the iconic front entrance.
Over the entrance are the words “Equal Justice Under Law.” But you can’t get in. Talk about a sign of the times. People can still exit through the front entrance, but they have to enter through a side doorway.
This was done for security reasons. Justice Stephen Breyer said no other high court in the world, not even Israel’s, has closed its front entrance. He said the front steps and the main entrance “are not only a means to, but also a metaphor for, access to the court itself.”
However, if you pay a little, uhh, gratuity [wink] you can still get in through the front door. As in, ahem, knowing the right people.
