Majestic Supreme Court

It turns out that Wall Street Journal columnist Danied Henniger attended the Supreme Court’s oral arguments on Monday, the day before McVeigh was argued. He wrote an engaging column in yesterday’s paper (subscription required) which concluded as follows: “[T]o enter the Supreme Court and encounter the place, the people and its essential purpose is to feel carbon-dated to 1789. Though often maddening, its majesty remains intact.” That is so true. I am so glad that I took my high school age daughter along to see the McVeigh argument on Tuesday (my own little Take your Daughter to Work event). It was impressive.
