Chief Justice William Rehnquist and Alice Cooper Soulmates?

Well, what does the Chief Justice of the Unites States Supreme Court have in common with Alice Cooper the rock star?

An Honorary Degree at Grand Canyon University, a Christian liberal arts college in Phoenix, Arizona.

Read about it here:

Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist has another degree - and what presumably is his first connection to rocker Alice Cooper.

The 80-year-old Rehnquist was awarded an honorary doctorate in political science from Grand Canyon University, a Christian liberal arts college in Phoenix. Rehnquist, who has academic degrees from Stanford and Harvard, practiced law in Arizona's capital city from 1953-69.

Last spring, Grand Canyon University honored Cooper, a born-again Christian once known for shocking concert audiences with guillotines, fake blood and decapitated baby dolls.

Rehnquist, a Lutheran, also has some musical talent, albeit of a much lower-key nature: He leads Christmas carols at the court each year.

But, at least the Chief Justice will be in tune! And hopefully no snakes.
