A very good piece in today's Projo by Robert Duffy, a lawyer from East Greenwich, Rhode Island, on the importance of selecting competent originalists to the US Supreme Court.

An excerpt:

"Both liberal and conservative activists should poke their heads out of the wagons long enough to see that the fight over John Roberts, Harriet Miers or any other Supreme Court nominee should not be based on their personal religious, political or moral beliefs; that field is far too narrow and the power transferred far too great. Instead, the real battle is ensuring that the Supreme Court stick to its job of interpreting the Constitution, and leave off its recent habit of issuing moral edicts cloaked in constitutional penumbras."
