me and my vulture

SCOTUS in da House!

I'm actually terribly bad at remembering names, so I had to call Bob and ask him if he remembered the name of the Supreme Court argument that we actually went and heard in person, but he couldn't remember either.

Probably because I woke him up; I am so sorry, love.  I feel awful about that.

So, I looked it up. You may not think prisoner's access to legal research is that important, but one of the basic tenets of our system of justice is that everyone get access to the help they need. Whether the petitioners were receiving adequate assistance was the question.
