HIS FAVORITE COLOR IS GREEN! He keeps Hershey's Kisses in the office! It's a new book about Chief Justice John Roberts by Lisa Tucker McElroy, author of "Meet My Grandmother: She's a Supreme Court Justice."
Roberts still takes his kids to school or camp, and during the school year works with them on homework assignments -- including a styrofoam model of the planet Neptune with Josie, and a paper Thanksgiving turkey in a pirate's outfit with Jack, who is deeply into pirates these days. One priceless photo in the book, from last Halloween, has Josie adjusting Groucho glasses on the chief justice's face.
Come on, you know you want this book! I've got McElroy's book on Grandma O'Connor on a shelf in my office, and I've seen lawprofs get rather excited about it.
