Ten Commandments

Today, the Supreme Court announced that it would rule on two cases having to do with the display of the ten commandments in government spaces. It would be truly bizarre if they were to rule that the display of the ten commandments was somehow unconstitutional in light of the fact that they are on display in the very courtroom where the judges have been deliberating for their entire tenure on the Court.

I suspect that, once again, the outcome will hinge on Justice O'Connor. She has disappointed of late, and I would not be surprised if once again she proved anathema to those who value the legacy of our Constitution.
