Kingfishery & Kingcakery - I have been reading a lot of outrage from the social conservative crowd about the recent Supreme Court decision banning sodomy laws. One typical example can be found in this letter to the editor of The Times-Picayune of New Orleans. The author of this letter ends by declaring:

Until Americans summon the courage to rebuke an uncontrolled and destructive Supreme Court, they must suffer under its pernicious and ignorant rule. They can certainly no longer respect it.
Well, I'm glad to hear that this writer now has come to his senses about the very court that put Bush into the Presidency. Those of us who were stunned by the political behavior of the Supreme Court in the 2000 election would agree that we have been suffering under the consequences of its "pernicious and ignorant rule" since that moment. I'm glad to see that social Conservatives have finally come around.

UPDATE 7/3/03: Well, whadda y'know... I sent a modified version of my comments above as a letter to the Editor of The Times Picayune, and they printed it!
