No Jinx Here. Look Away.

October 21, 2008

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.

    Yes, let’s hope for that. Going by the recent polls, it is looking like it won’t come to the Supreme Court…very likely not to. But, don’t hold your breath. The Phils *are* in the World Series this year, and might go all the way. Stranger things have happened.
