No Jinx Here. Look Away.
As I am reading _The Nine_, which I highly recommend…
I was troubled by this post of mine a few days ago in light of this quote (on page 146 of my copy)…
In the Court itself, as a new term began in October 2000, a near silence prevailed. Controversial cases seemed to have vanished from the pipeline. For the justices, the sleepy docket was a welcome respite after the dramas of the previous year. Greeting a new group of law clerks that fall, David Souter was smiling when he made a prediction: ‘This is going to be a very boring year.’
…sleepy docket it was. Until….Bush v. Gore, 531 U.S. 98 (2000).
We best not having the Supreme Court involved in this year’s election.
