  • Time to bury the death penalty

    For tradition, ritual, dignity and decorum, there's nothing like the United States Supreme Court. I attended the last non-argument session of the court this season, the first time I'd ever been in the building. And, believe me, it wasn't easy. I could...
  • High Court strikes a blow against congressional gerrymandering

  • Woman in Mormon church photo voices support for gay marriage

    Mormon Sylvia Cabus was thrilled with the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to legalize gay marriage, but those checking out her church's website likely wouldn't have known it. Soon after last week's ruling, friends flooded the Washington, D.C., woman with...

    For years, St. Paul United Church of Christ in Barrington has supported the lesbian, gay and bisexual community, said Kathleen Bolger, church council president. She also said St. Paul has included that community, as well as the questioning, queer and...
  • Supreme Court ruling reaffirms the power of voters, not politicians

    Supreme Court ruling reaffirms the power of voters, not politicians
    That was a nice Fourth of July gift from the Supreme Court, reaffirming that "We the People" get to decide how our elected representatives are chosen. The politicians are not endowed with an inalienable right — not even a constitutional one...
  • A dire threat to public employees from the Supreme Court

    A dire threat to public employees from the Supreme Court
    To all those who detected a shift toward progressive thinking in the Supreme Court's rulings last week protecting the Affordable Care Act and legalizing gay marriage: You should stop celebrating now. That's because the court has taken up a case that...

    Conservative overreach may explain liberal victories in Supreme Court
