Well, what does the Chief Justice of the Unites States Supreme Court have in common with Alice Cooper the rock star?
An Honorary Degree at Grand Canyon University, a Christian liberal arts college in Phoenix, Arizona.
Read about it here:
Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist has another degree – and what presumably is his first connection to rocker Alice Cooper.
The 80-year-old Rehnquist was awarded an honorary doctorate in political science from Grand Canyon University, a Christian liberal arts college in Phoenix. Rehnquist, who has academic degrees from Stanford and Harvard, practiced law in Arizona’s capital city from 1953-69.
Last spring, Grand Canyon University honored Cooper, a born-again Christian once known for shocking concert audiences with guillotines, fake blood and decapitated baby dolls.
Rehnquist, a Lutheran, also has some musical talent, albeit of a much lower-key nature: He leads Christmas carols at the court each year.
But, at least the Chief Justice will be in tune! And hopefully no snakes.
