So I'm briefing the case Sweatt v. Painter et al., and I was entering Counsel's names. For those that weren't aware, this is a case in which Thurgood Marshall, future Brown counsel and justice of the US Supreme Court, took part. I put in his name and MS Word naturally hilighted it as a possible misspelling. Curious as to what the suggested correct spellings might be (his name at birth was Thoroughgood, but he shortened it as a child), I took a look. Well, to my surprise, guess what one of the alternate spellings was? Go on, guess!
How's that for irony. Even moreso for anyone familiar with the desegregation struggles in this country (USA).
