The Supremes End the Season with Disastrous Decisions

In one decision, the Court gave away the farm to the political machines. Here's Paul Jacob on the Kelo case -- a very cogent column. Note particularly Jacob's point regarding the increased danger this decision poses for churches. Thomas Sowell also does a good job of evaluating the Kelo decision.

In another hairsplitting set of decisions, the Court again embarrassed itself by trashing the Constitution, its own history and common sense by disallowing (and kinda', maybe, sometimes) allowing religious monuments. Here's George Will's take. And perhaps even better is this one from Bill Murchison.
