Being a Judge Looks FUN
Today's bloggerNothing big. Small funny to bring to your attention for the smile I hope you get.

In his 8-1 majority decision in Lopez vs. Gonzalez, Justice Souter responded to the government's argument thusly, "there are a few things wrong with this argument, the first being its incoherence."

Doesn't that make you want to be a judge? I often wish I could respond like that to various complainants in my life!!

For extra credit - guess the lone dissenter. You don't even need to know the case.

Here's the NYT coverage of the case which, in fact, was about deporting immigrants, legal or otherwise, for drug crimes classified by federal law as misdemeanors.
