The Court Decisions



Apropos of what Pat Lynch writes below, I have not read the Supreme Court decisions yet and only a little analysis of them. But my good friend Jacob Hornberger of The Future of Freedom Foundation, an attorney as well as a dedicated libertarian, applauds them in A Supreme Reason to Celebrate the Fourth of July.

I'm thinking...

Is there something that "just ain't so" which I should be debunking? Just say the word...

So that's why you're not working on an article for The Freeman! :)

Pat asks "Why do you think these decisions seem to have gotten such little reaction either on our blog or among the media? The whole thing seemed muted for some reason to me."
My excuse is, grading final exams and papers for my summer class. The only news I've noticed the last 36 hours is the Yankees sweep of the Sox (good) and the death of the great Marlon Brando (double-plus-ungood). I'll try to catch up over the weekend.

I don't know. I haven't been watching TV, so I wasn't aware that the decisions were given short shrift. I heard some (inane) discusssion of them on conservative talk radio, specifically Laura Ingraham, who thought they were a Bush win. (Go figure.) I can't explain why the blogs were silent, unless no one was bothering to read the decisions and they found the newspaper coverage confusing.
