Dwayne McDuffie inspired an influential legal mind...unwittingly

This is a story that I have been pointing out to friends for a while, and I want to get it out of my backlogged links topics. Dwayne McDuffie is the founder of Milestone Media, a black owned comics company (of which now the assets are owned by DC comics)*. Through them, he has published a number of titles which feature blacks as the main and major characters. Now he also writes episodes for Teen Titans and Justice League (and Unlimited), and a number of other cartoons, (he is also the story editor for Justice League Unlimited). But back then, when he wrote "Icon" he had a very big and influential fan in Clarence Thomas. How big?
"He quotes Icon in papers and speeches. Rather, since you write those lines, he quotes you."
