God, I can't remember what started the "Speak Truth to Power" craze.
Maybe it was Conyers?? I'm sure someone will remember.
I don't know who originally said it, but I never heard it until I moved to Detroit. I don't think Conyers was the first to say it-it's usually said in a politically motivational context-have you ever heard Conyers speak? He's not exactly a gifted speaker.
Correct me if I'm wrong but did the judge not rule on the ability of Johnson bringing the suit rather than the merits? To me, the suit itself is still open if someone can be identified with standing...
