Midday Musings - January 13, 2011

U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. quotes Ronald Reagan as follows: "I do not believe in a fate that will befall us no matter what we do; I do believe in a fate that will fall on us if we do nothing."  I was just thinking how apropos the former President's statement is so many decades later.  To Roberts, Reagan was and is "a call to action."  So he should be to us.

Roger Parloff in the latest issue of Fortune magazine writes this:  "The (U.S.) Constitution vests the Supreme Court with 'appellate jurisdiction . . . with such exceptions . . .  as the Congress shall make.'"  That is to say, that if Congress so votes, the Supreme Court could be barred from deciding certain issues -- e.g. abortion, school prayer, busing, etc.  It's possible but not likely unless the Conservatives control both parts of the Congress.
