FOLKS, YOU KNOW, I COULD NOT DOTHIS SHOW WITHOUT YOU.

I AM BUT ONE MAN.

YOU ARE THE NATION.

AND FOLKS, YOU KNOW, IF YOUWATCH THIS SHOW YOU KNOW I

BELIEVE IN AMERICA'S JUDICIALSYSTEM. WHENEVER ANYBODY ASKS I

SAY, "OUR COURTS ARE THE BEST."

UNLESS THEY'RE ASKING ME TOSERVE JURY DUTY IN WHICH CASE I

SAY, "HITLER HAD SOMEGOOD IDEAS."

THAT USUALLY GETS ME SENT HOME MACH SCHNELL .

SO I'VE BEEN PAYING PRETTY CLOSEATTENTION TO THE SUPREME COURT

WHICH JUST TODAY OVERTURNED AKEY PROVISION OF THE VOTING

RIGHTS ACT OF 1965 WHICHREQUIRED THE JIM CROW STATES TO

GET FEDERAL PERMISSION BEFORECHANGING ANY OF THEIR VOTING

LAWS.

THANKFULLY, CHIEF JUSTICE JOHNROBERTS, OLD BLUE EYES, KNOWS

THAT THE SOUTH DOESN'T NEED TOBE BABYSAT ANYMORE SAYING,

QUOTE, NEARLY 50 YEARS LATERTHINGS HAVE CHANGED

DRAMATICALLY.

YES, FOR SOME REASON SINCE THEVOTING RIGHTS ACT WAS PASSED,

THINGS HAVE CHANGEDDRAMATICALLY.

THEREFORE, WE CAN GET RID OF ITNOW.

IT'S JUST LIKE THOSE OUTDATEDLABOR LAWS THAT PROHIBIT

CHILDREN FROM THREADING BOBBINSON A LOOM.

A KID HASN'T BEEN SUCKED INTOONE OF THOSE MACHINES IN YEARS.

LET'S STOP PLAYING NANNY HERE.

I'LL HAVE MORE ON THIS IMPORTANTDECISION LATER IN THE SHOW WITH

MY GUEST PROFESSOR PENIELJOSEPH.

I HEAR HE'S BLACK.
