What's Wrong With These Pictures?

I just read that the Supreme Court decided in yet another 5 -4 decision that school desegregation plans are unconstitutional.

That's the same 5 -4 majority that voted yesterday that schools can limit students' speech, and the same 5 -4 majority that allowed bans on a specific type of medical procedure for late term abortions.

Look at their pictures. Alito, Kennedy, Roberts, Scalia, and Thomas -- talk about activist justices! Protestations during confirmation hearings to the contrary, Justices Alito and Roberts don't seem to worry too much about precedents.

Breyer, Ginsburg, Souder, and Stevens have stood up to this majority 22 TIMES this year -- and lost.

I am frightened for America -- and frightened for other sexual justice issues that could come before this court. If you have been feeling impatient about the early start of the 2008 Presidential campaign, take another look at the ages of the people in the bottom row who are working to protect your rights. Get involved.

Totally agree. So very amazed that the ostriches still have their heads in the sand.
