First, Fourth and Sixth Amendment Bits

Though not perfect (it is the NY Post), this opinion piece is on point on the problems with the use of clergy at the Obama inauguration -- no, not Rick Warren as such. Another in a line of "Apprendi" cases has an interesting split, Roberts and Alito divided, and Souter alone among the four dissenters. And, the dangers to privacy arising from computer databases was raised by the Supremes back in the 1970s. But, five justices were less concerned today. In fact, it might be even worse. Souter right in both cases.
