  •  Roberts' answers on "privacy" (3.50)
    was dissembling and very, very cagey.  In specifying Griswald as "settled law," he affirmed married couples' right to privacy in the area of contraception.  It was later that the question of an unmarried person's right to contraception came before the court and was won.  Roberts never said he agreed with the "right to privacy" cited in that decision.

    And that right to individual privacy was much more important in the Roe v. Wade decision than Griswald was.

    I have to admit his hearings proved him a master at concealment, though.  He has even managed to convince some Kossaks that his answers on the right to privacy are "reassuring."
