Further signs of the apocalypse

--Justice Breyer was a swing vote on one of the 10 commandments decisions handed down today. (Did O'Connor, her mind set on retirement, relinquish the swing set?)

--The repeatedly assaulted Lemon reared its ugly head only to be given a shot of steroids. I'll just refer you to a poignant Scalia-ism: "Like some ghoul in a late night horror movie that repeatedly sits up in its grave and shuffles abroad after being repeatedly killed and buried, Lemon stalks our Establishment Clause jurisprudence once again, frightening the little children and attorneys..." (Lambs Chapel, 1993)

What's next? Justice Thomas announcing his retirement?
