TIH: Nov. 13

According to the Dallas Morning  News [blogger's comments in parens]
Supreme Court Justice Louis D. Brandeis was born in Louisville, Ky.
The Supreme Court struck down laws calling for racial segregation on public buses.
President Bill Clinton agreed to pay Paula Jones $850,000 to settle a sexual harassment lawsuit.  [some morons still view this guy as a great Pres.]
Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore was thrown off the bench by a judicial ethics panel after refusing to remove a granite Ten Commandments monument from the state courthouse.
Attorney General Eric Holder announced plans to try professed 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four others in civilian court in New York City. (The Obama administration later backed off the plan.)



  1. Regarding the 2003 Alabama chief justice, this was a good example of PC run amok. While the separation of church and state adheres to America's founding principles, display of the Ten Commandments can be viewed purely from a historical perspective as opposed to a religious one. These commandments form the basis of western civilization's moral codes Eastern societies follow a similar golden rule through their own belief systems.

  2. 44: I agree. Many judges have gone beyond what the establishment clause was designed to prevent--"an establishment of religion" (state run/backed church).
