James Madison, the father of the Constitution, has a birthday today. How much do you know about the fourth president?

The highest court in the land of toys isn’t the Supreme Court, it’s apparently Lego, which won’t allow Supreme Court figurines in a play set because they are considered too “political.”
On March 11, 1861, delegates from the newly formed Confederate States of America agreed on their own constitution. And much of it mirrored the Constitution of the United States as it existed at the time.
On March 10, 1848, the Senate approved a treaty that led to California and much of the Southwest joining the United States. But the man who negotiated the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo was promptly fired on his return to Washington.
It’s not exactly March Madness, but the Supreme Court has some big decisions in its pipeline that could be coming down in the next few weeks, including a case with international implications and an important ruling on a Facebook case.
