9.  Like many primitive cultures, many Justices believe that cameras will steal their souls.

8.  Court can’t reach a consensus on whether Quentin Tarantino, Martin Scorsese, or Steve McQueen should direct.

6.  Cameras might reveal that Justice Kennedy decides 5-4 cases by flipping a coin.

5.  The embarrassment of ratings for an ERISA oral argument being lower than a Judge Judy rerun on Channel 38.

4.  Concerns that video might “mis-educate the American people.”  Wait, that one’s real.

2.  The CIA has asked that Special Agent Bader Ginsburg not be shown on camera for fear of jeopardizing her undercover work in Azerbaijan.

1.  “How we decide cases is none of your damn business, Hippies, Hipsters, Hip-hoppers or whatever they call you nowadays.”
