Brown, see thread in news section on partial birth abortion. . . it is a better discussion.

also . . . did you read about zuni??? Scalia calls the majority opinion applesauce and says that Holy Trinity Church (an old and bad case) has risen Phoenix-like from the ashes in Breyer's Zuni opinion. He also refers to "judicial libido." Classic stuff. I'm wearing my I heart Scalia shirt today . . .lol

Scalia would have decided Holy Trinity the same as it was decided even though his methodology would dictate a different result.

Isn't criticizing Holy Trinity??? Why would he rule the same way???

He sure is enjoying life as the swing vote. No one else is going to write a pivotal majority opinion for at leas the next year or two.
