I'm waiting, like most of the nation, for the announcement from on high from the Supremes tomorrow.  I put no faith in the Court, because if you want to define Ivory Tower, you've got to start with nine lawyers in Washington.  They can couch their decisions in whatever verbiage they want to use, but the simple fact is that they're subject to the will of The People, just like everyone else.

Most observers are giving 50-50 odds, and frankly, that's a wash.  Of course it's 50-50, either they will or they won't and prognostications like that are worthless.  We'll have to wait and see for this momentous decision.  They've already decided, frankly, and they're just stringing us out, which is what judges do.  They could just as easily have published the decision and opinions online, but someone told them they are important and they believe it.

The simple fact of the matter is that the people who are important are those who have to make the decisions work, and the most important folks are The People.
