    I. Love. That. Quote.

    I don't think this court, or any Supreme Court, would even think about softening the blow of any upcoming decision. I believe this an extremely political, activist court. I...

    Judge Roberts is trying to make me like him. But so far I'm successfully resisting. :)

    Except the article states that those items were "untested". Not that they were untested via DNA. I take that to mean they weren't tested at all -- even using methods that were widely acceptable at...

    Re: Supreme Court Watch 2010-2011

    I have a one question concerning the above. Why were these items untested?

    I'm trying to wrap my mind around any case that would disallow the (re)testing of evidence that could bring "the truth"...

    Ahhh. That makes sense that it would be part of the Judicial Code of Ethics. Thanks for that, Moose.

    I'm looking forward to reading that editorial.

    Interesting. I didn't know that about Thomas. Maybe his home-life as bled over into his work-life. ;)

    If we go back to Dry's idea of certifying people before their allowed to be parents, a lot of these decisions wouldn't be unnecessary.

    I think it's a sad testament to human evolution that we even have to consider laws about video games depicting violence against people.

    It's not a mosque and it's not at ground zero. (Sorry. I couldn't help it. :p)

    In all seriousness though, you're absolutely right. You can't legislate against bad taste and hatred.
