Well, it looks like we've been burned again! Alito sided with the liberals in his very first case! I wonder what Harriet Miers would have done? Unbelieveable!

I'm going to give him a "first day settling in" pass (grin) and see what develops in future...his past record is reassuring. Fingers crossed! Laura

Mr. Alito, let me introduce you to David Souter and Anthony Kennedy. I am sure you three will be good friends (wink, grin).

Bench Memos (http://bench.nationalreview.com/) doesn't seem to feel that what happened on the death penalty appeal was particularly significant. I don't know enough about the details myself to render a judgment. There's also a lengthy thread at Confirm Them (http://www.confirmthem.com/?p=2201) if you're interested in checking out more thoughts on this story.

I'm sure we'll be watching future developments with interest! TTYS, Laura
