Today on The Michelangelo Signorile Show on SiriusXM PROGRESS ch.127

Ian Millhiser, Editor with Think Progress Justice, returns to the show this afternoon to discuss what the decision in the 1983 Bob Jones University v. United States Supreme Court decision and the fight before parallels the battle against LGBT discrimination we're having over 30 years later in the Courts and if it could lead to schools who discriminate losing a tax exempt status.  Be sure to check Ian Millhiser out on Twitter.

Is geography one of the determining factors of how a Supreme Court Justice comes to their decision in a case?  Author Akhil Reed Amar argues that yes, where a Justice went to law school or whether they grew up in the mountains or the plains could impact the Justices thought process on cases.  In The Law Of The Land: A Grand Tour of Our Constitutional Republic, he looks at the relationship between geography and the law and how it's shaped our country.
