Sentient - that would explain a great deal about the Supreme Court! It's probably no accident that we've never seen any of Scalia's or Thomas's poetry. They want to keep their law clerks alive. :-)

Tony, thank you for the HitchHiker's therapy - my favorite!

Chrissie - absolutley wise words!

Grinning Cat - Mr. Scalia reminds me of a Vogon in human form.  Perhaps he and Thomas are Vogon:human hybrids.

Dallas - thanks for the video.

Now for a nap!

Courtney Milan has written a funny yet accurate summary of the oral arguments on Prop. 8 before the Supreme Court:

This summary is still fairly long, but it’s shorter and I’ve worked to make things as accessible as possible to those without legal training [...] this is basically what happened, plus or minus the aliens eating children.

[...]

COOPER: Thank you, Mr. Chief Justice, and may it please the Court. Today, we—

ROBERTS: In keeping with the practices of this Court, we don’t allow anyone to complete a full sentence before interrupting them. Tell us why the people who hired you should even be allowed to bring a case. [...]

I also welcome you back among the living.  As one of the oldest (because I have outlived most of my friends) I can attest to the fact that getting old aint for wimps.  May you also reach a grand old age.

I am also glad to hear things are going better for you, my friend. In lieu of being able to send flowers, I would like to send you the following. We are thinking of you.

Daniel, I am so happy to read your post! Goodness, so much tissue gone. I don't know any remedies for hiccups that work, sorry. Up and walking is the best news of all. Do take good care of yourself and send notes when you feel like it. We all shared anxiety over how you are doing and just seeing your name this morning made my day. 
Will you be expecting weight loss with part of your stomach gone? I will think positive thoughts that you recover quickly and without pain.

Throughout the years we have often referred to the Supreme Court in terms of being more Liberal or more Conservative, but the fact is the Supreme Court, overall, tends to lean conservatively.  To be blunt, the Supreme Court is not a progressive institution.

Yes, and we all know how Scalia is going to vote on the issue.
