Coincidence? I think not.

John "Buttrocket" Hinderaker shares initals with Jack Handey.

See if you can tell them apart:

A. Actually, though, the Constitution doesn't require Supreme Court justices to be lawyers, let alone judges. I've always thought it might be salutary to have a non-lawyer or two on the Court. God knows we have plenty of businessmen, scientists, historians, housewives and others who are perfectly competent to read and understand the Constitution or a federal statute. And I think it would be fun to have such a person say, just once, as the Justices are deliberating: "Where does it say that?"

B. You know what would make a good story? Something about a clown who makes people happy, but inside he's real sad. Also, he has severe diarrhea.

I bet a funny thing about driving a car off a cliff is, while you're
in midair, you still hit those brakes. Hey, better try the emergency

Update: Speaking of Jack Handey, go read the latest installment of Deep Thoughts, by Peggy Noonan, at the superb World O'Crap. John Hinderaker and Jack Handey may share initials, but Peggy Noonan is Jack Handey-er than Jack Handey himself.
