    but this court will never do it.

    In fact, it's hard for me to imagine that we'll even get a dissent that goes there, though I hope we do.  Stevens could have.

    Didn't the ninth circuit once hold that the phrase under god in the pledge of allegiance couldn't be compelled in public schools...  I actually agreed with that too... Lol

    Balkinization has a great series of posts on this case if you're interested in a law profs informed analysis.  

    If you didn't care what happened to me, and I didn't care for you, we would zig zag our way through the boredom and pain, occasionally glancing up through the rain, wondering which of the buggers to blame, and watching for pigs on the wing. R. Waters
