Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

For those who believe that past Supreme Court decisions are sacrosanct and inviolable regarding certain issues--such as the decision in Roe v. Wade, it might be good to remember there are other cases out there, such as Plessy v. Ferguson, that many saw as equally important to their rights.

Not really drawing a parallel between the two cases, but rather offering a reminder that wearing the robes of a Supreme Court justice does not convey absolute infallibility. Courts are made up of fellow citizens, and although they may have deeper individual insights or knowledge, they are still bound up by the same human limits that affect us all.

Also a reminder that because something is legal, doesn't mean it's good.
