"Not often can one watch a former solicitor general of the United States directing venerable Supreme Court justices to observe naked posteriors of the marble statues that stand sentinel at the highest court in the land. 'There’s a bare buttocks there,' Washington lawyer Seth Waxman advised the startled justices during his oral argument on Tuesday. 'And there’s a bare buttocks here,' he said, pivoting and pointing across the ornate courtroom. The black-robed justices obliged the lawyer by following his extended finger to a sculptor’s rendition of gluteus maximus." (01/10/12)
