D.C. Circuit Quotes Schoolhouse Rock

 

In a blockbuster environmental ruling, the D.C. Circuit quoted from the classic Schoolhouse Rock cartoon, I'm Just a Bill

From the opinion (after a detailed discussion of the legislative process):

As a generation of schoolchildren knows, "by that time, it's very unlikely that [a bill will] become a law.  It's not easy to become a law."

The court went on to cite an internet link to the cartoon.  I wonder if the reference would have been even more effective with an embedded video clip (or at least a live hyperlink) in the opinion to make viewing easier.
