  •  Per Scott Brown (6+ / 0-)

    He lied about his ancestry and got caught.

    Until a few weeks ago, Scott Brown was a 22-year-old first-year law student at Boston College Law School who frequently ran across opinions written by his great-grandfather, Arthur Prentice Rugg, former Chief Justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Court.

    "I read many of his cases this year," he said, "which I found amusing."

    The problem for Scott?  He was not Rugg's great-grandson, they were only distantly related.  The Times had to print a retraction a few days later.

    I don't know what consciousness is or how it works, but I like it.
