    that if it gets to the Supreme Court Roberts, Alito, Thomas, and Scalia will find SOME rationale for voting with their party.  Unlikely they'll find a fifth.

    But check out some of the sources cited in Cuccinelli's brief:

    Littleton, Adam
    Dr. Adam Littleton’s Latin dictionary, in four Parts:
    I. An English-Latin, II. A Latin-classical,
    III. A Latin-Proper, IV. A Latin-barbarous,
    Part II (no pagination) (6th ed. London 1735)

    Mair, John
    The Tyro’s Dictionary, Latin and English
    (2d ed. Edinburgh 1763)

    Smith, Adam
    Wealth of Nations,
    (Prometheus Brooks Amherst N.Y. 1991)

    Webster, Noah
    An American Dictionary of the English Language
    (S. Converse New York 1828)

    A Pocket Dictionary (3d ed. London 1765)

    I can't wait to hear how Adam Smith and 18th and 19th century Latin and English dictionaries are going to bolster their case.

    Reality is just a convenient measure of complexity. -- Alvy Ray Smith
