Ahhh, that the application thereof was the rule not the exception.

    This statement is a test of one's objectivity. It must be remembered that words are not responsible for their source. In this case it is the words that are right.

    Government creates laws which make us unequal, laws which recognize, respect and protect specific people (blacks, gays, women, etc.). These laws cause disrespect and harm, by discriminating against those not covered under the law. The Supreme Court should strike down all laws which do not apply to all citizens.
     -- Joe, Rochester, MI     
    True. But what happens when the government oversteps these bounds? What real recourse is there for the People?
     -- E Archer, NYC     
    Come on! we know damn well what the recourse is, we just haven't gotten there yet.

    Justice Thomas sums it up and achieves the correct totality. "Go to the head of the class, Clarence."
