This week President Barack Obama nominated DC Circuit Court Chief Judge Merrick Garland to replace Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court. Garland is a highly respected centrist jurist with decades of high-level experience…and he shares a name with Wizard of Oz starlet Judy Garland! So, how well do you know the man who could become Obama’s third appointee to the nation’s highest court? Find out in our quiz!

(H/t to SCOTUSblog for its excellent rundown of Merrick’s judicial history.)

TIME IS RUNNING OUT!

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and it's truly crunch time: About 15 percent of our yearly online giving usually comes in during the final week of the year, and in "No Cute Headlines or Manipulative BS," we explain why we simply can't afford to come up short right now.

The bottom line: Corporations and powerful people with deep pockets will never sustain the type of journalism Mother Jones exists to do. And advertising or profit-driven ownership groups will never make time-intensive, in-depth reporting viable.

That's why donations big and small make up 74 percent of our budget this year. There is no backup to keep us going, no alternate revenue source, no secret benefactor. If readers don’t donate, we won’t be here. It's that simple.

And if you can help us out with a donation right now, all online gifts will be matched thanks to an incredibly generous matching gift pledge.
