Notes on the Atrocities
Like a 100-watt radio station, broadcasting to the dozens...

Interesting news from the Supreme Court on the Michigan admissions policies. A yea and a nay. They ruled that the undergrad policy--in which 20 points were assigned for minority students on a 150-point scale--amounted to a quota. But in the law school, the use of of race as one factor was regarded (narrowly) as passing Constitutional muster.

(I 'spose it just barely bears mentioning that the law school ruling, at 5-4, shows the tenuousness of the balance of law in America. If Dubya gets to replace one of the four--Sandra Day, say--laws will start to change, and dramatically. Saddle up, Dems, you're about to be in the fight of your lives.)
