SCOTUS review

(That’s Supreme Court Of The United States). Apropos of the discussion over at usuphilosophy.com, here is a NYT review of the decisions handed down over the last term. A leftish-leaning president cannot come fast enough! (There aren’t any genuine leftists in the field; we’re limited to extreme-right, not-so-extreme right, and drifting from time to time over the median.)

  1. Paul says:

    In their recent comments both candiates agree on the court decisions, unless you believe that one or both are lying…

    Ages of current justices:
    Stevens 88
    Ginsburg 75 (keep falling asleep during readings of decisions this week)
    Scalia 72
    Kennedy 71
    Bryer 69
    Souter 68
    Thomas 60
    Alito 58
    Chief Justice Roberts …53

    If the justices retire by age, if anything the court will remain the same or gain more ‘swing voters’ a la Kennedy.

  2. If there was a god, I would thank god for our current supreme court. And thank god that academics do not choose our president.

    Well, fellow Huenemann, I can at least agree with that second instance of gratitude!
