On Monday June 27, Logan Darrow Clements, faxed a request to Chip Meany the code enforcement officer of the Towne of Weare, New Hampshire seeking to start the application process to build a hotel on 34 Cilley Hill Road. This is the present location of [Supreme Court Justice] Souter's home.
Is this another Dredd Scott? No, nobody's going to war over this. But it does show just how dangerous the Supreme Court can be. It's not the predictable left or right wing bias you should fear, it's the completely-out-of-left-field-we-are-the-SCOTUS-please-take-a-fuck-you-at-the-door decisions they have occasionally made that should keep you awake at night. Dredd Scott (aka "let's rip down the country just to see what the plebes come up with second time around") is just the best known, but just about any decision from the Warren court will do as well.
And yes dearies, I know which one you're thinking of, and I still stand behind the statement.
