Losing Respect

May 12, 2014

Tuesday is often Supreme Court day, and it is today, too. But I’m not writing, mostly.

I read The Polarized Court in the Sunday Times and decided, Sunday afternoon, that when someone else tells a story better than you can, you need to step aside. The writer, Adam Liptak, is a journalist/attorney with a Pulitzer Price on his shelf. He’s clearly knowledgeable, and my only quibble with Mr. Liptak’s piece is one I should not have:  he’s really very even-handed about the problem. And about my headline? I didn’t think I should borrow from the New York Times, and I think Mr. Liptak’s real message is the loss of respect for the Supreme Court that comes with political polarity.
