Legal Wit

So my SECOND favorite blog is powerline, because of posts like this:

[Supreme Court Nominee Judge Roberts] acknowledged Roe and, more important, Casey as precedents and bought into the "erosion" theory under which some precedents are more precedential than others. The implicit point of this is to distinguish Roe from Bowers, which decided that there was no Constitutional right to homosexual sodomy in 1986, but was overruled in 2004 because it was "eroded"--that is to say, Justice O'Connor changed her mind. And Roberts said that he agrees with the result in Griswold v. Connecticut and recognizes a general "right of privacy"--whatever its contours may be--in the Fourteenth Amendment's guarantee of liberty.

But maybe I'm just a law geek.
