MAYBE IT’S NOT ADULTERY, BUT IT’S ALSO NOT HAPPENING TONIGHT, MISTER: Via Eugene Volokh comes the word that the New Hampshire Supreme Court ruled yesterday that oral sex is not adultery.
Many people (like Prof. Volokh) read this and think: “Bill Clinton is now vindicated” (disclaimer: vindication valid only in New Hampshire).
I read it and think: I’d hate to have been a fly on the wall last night at the homes of the married male Justices of the New Hampshire Supreme Court. I’m guessing that was an ugly scene.
COLUMN AT CALIFORNIAREPUBLIC.ORG: I have an column up today at CaliforniaRepublic.org. You can read it by clicking here.
The column argues that the court system should treat the life of Terri Schiavo with at least the same respect as it treats the lives of suspected or convicted murderers. This is a subject I have mentioned before, but the column is a more comprehensive look at the way the lives of capital murder defendants receive more protections than that of someone in Ms. Schiavo’s situation.
