Mistaken identity

Justice Stevens toured the school in San Antonio that was named after him last week. He spoke to the students and answered their questions. How cool is that?

From the San Antonio Express News:

He is the senior member of the nation's highest court. Now the acting Supreme Court chief justice, John Paul Stevens has served for 30 years.

But on a tour of Northside's newest school, John Paul Stevens High School — named in his honor — Stevens, wearing his trademark bow tie and heavy, dark-framed glasses, earned another claim to fame Wednesday.

"Are you the guy from Fiesta Texas?" a student in a special education class asked the justice as he shook his hand.

The student wasn't thinking about legal arguments and precedents. He was thinking about the man in the dark suit and bow tie who dances wildly on Six Flags theme park commercials.
