    Just the facts.

    On the other hand, the remark about Alito's colon.... Maybe a cheap shot, but also seems spot-on.

    Was never very good at math. Oddly, though, I can count by twos if I start at the number 1.

      what his personal health issues are and it's none of your goddamned business, and I'm in a much better position to know than you are.

        why was it news?

        Look, not wanting a flame-war... But the dude fell off a dock, didn't he? Guess it was just dumb luck he wasn't driving or doing something else that'd have left him in a more vulnerable situation. Maybe you know better than me and he's got it under control. But don't fault me for repeating something that was in all the newspapers when it happened.

          because it was sensational. You wanna muckrake? Go after his former law partner.

          The problem with stories like this that are "all over the news" is that often they are highly distorted. The other thing they do is violate people's neighbors' privacy, which is exactly what happened to me in this particular case.

          Argue the man's court decisions, and leave half-true media reports alone. You'll be doing better journalism than those who put it "all over the newspapers".

          The same dock where I keep my boat.

        ...it is ABSOLUTELY our "godamnned business" since these aristocrats are all up in our shit, dictating like a buncha little Francos!

        Roberts clearly had some sort of seizure a few years ago that required medical attention, that is an issue of public concern, not "none of our goddamned business!"
