Another Important Case

The silly idea that a valid ‘drug war exception’ exists has probably done more to restrict protections intended by the Bill of Rights over the past four decades than any other lame fascist excuse. Of the protections that still survive, the First Amendment has been both the most important, and the one drug warriors would most like to curtail.

In that context, a case scheduled to be heard  next week by the Supremes is not only critical, but should also serve as harbinger of the impact of Dubya's and Papa Bush's appointments on the Supreme Court over the next few decades.

I wish I could be more optimistic...
