This is a very very important news story, and when time permits, I hope to analyze it further in a full scale article. This is Judge Frank Easterbrook, and remember he was a Reagan appointee. This is an 8 year old commencement address by him, and there are many more of his lectures to the best law schools in America, all on line at YouTube.com

Steve, thanks for your comment. I agree that this article is important, especially given the Constitutional crisis currently oppressing this country. What bravery. Scalia wanted him as his successor on SCOTUS.
