Words Well Writ

Wesley Pruden on Chief Justice John Roberts new-found ... glory:

"The much-anticipated operation was a brilliant success, but the patient died. Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. is a clever surgeon, and he left a bloody mess to prove it. He’s in the Mediterranean now, on the island of Malta, lecturing to European lawyers about how to 'grow' in office, basking in the applause of fans of the welfare state."
