4. Wonderful news...and screw you, Vlasik!
His mouthpiece made some comment about how this doesn't prohibit him from ordering new roads for "safety concerns." What, timber companies are going stop paying you money so you fewar for your safety? I can't believe we have to fight Dems on this.

10. I don't think they'd dare. The heat they'd generate would bring too much scrutiny...
and several on the SCOTUS can't afford much scrutiny. They'd be decimated if people found out that lunches/payoffs with lobbyists are all too common... but I'm not talking about Scalia (though I did serve him and a "friend" lunch once and didn't feel clean for weeks afterward).

11. I hope you're right, but I doubt they give a damn about scrutiny. Lifetime appointments and all.
