Sure, these two things appear disparate, and to be honest, we’d be stretching it if we tried to draw some kind of parallel. Had the Police not reunited at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremonies in 2003, we could have at least said that both events were unprecedented. So all we’re left to write is that both events are “big” — too big to be ignored — and are likely to be talked about by people in the next couple of days, especially by all those musician/lawyers in town (you’d be surprised how many there are). So just in case you’re one of these types, or know one of these types, or are interested in music, or curious about law, or the government, or why Sting, Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland have had such a hard time being in the same room together for so long, or feel it’s your duty as a citizen to understand the Supreme Court — have we hit everyone yet? — here’s the news.
