Meet Richard Hohensee. He's a homeless man here in Washington, who has been living on the D.C. streets for some two years -- which has been "very convenient," in his words, since he's running for president.

The Supreme Court's marble palace at One First Street, on the day before the Heller argument.
Georgetown law students Hayley Tozeski, Jacqueline Ambrose, and John Benton (who were 1Ls at the time).
The campers were smart (as you might expect from Supreme Court junkies). They brought folding chairs and lots of reading material, and they dressed warmly.
Alan Korwin is the author of a book about the Second Amendment and gun regulation, "Gun Laws of America."
The Heller spectators-to-be were in good spirits, despite having to camp out overnight in the cold to guarantee they'd make it into the courtroom the next day for the oral argument.
