TIME machine

Back on Thursday I posted a TDot’s Tips entry on highlighting the headnotes when you’re reading your casebook. The example photo I used for that entry was the LexisNexis headnotes from Baker v. Carr (369 U.S. 186 (1962)) that we were currently reading in ConLaw.

"Where are the rivals to Apple's iPad?" Not born at the time this article was written...

The textbook provided a reminder that the whole “one man, one vote” apportionment philosophy that most of us take for granted is actually a fairly new “innovation” that’s only existed for 50ish years in this country :beatup:

So I randomly decided to go Googling for more info on the doctrine’s origins.

Apparently TIME Magazine must have put all of their old articles online, because what I found was a 1968 article on Avery v. Midland County (390 US 474 (1968)) — surrounded by the rest of their 2010 website, including the ability to tweet the story or submit it to Digg :surprised:

Maybe I’m a nerd for being fascinated by this, but it felt pretty doggone cool reading the story like this, almost like being transported back 50 years ago and reading it as it happened.

Except for the whole reading-it-on-an-internet-that-didn’t-exist-back-then thing of course :beatup:
