Ginsburg & the Gospel

On a 6-2 vote, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld an Environmental Protection Agency rule that seeks to punish those polluters whose emissions cross state lines. It is nice to see a victory for the environment, not for big corporations, from the Roberts' Court. But, the best part about the decision? Ruth Bader Giinsburg concluded her opinion for the Court with a quote from the Gospel of John: "The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth.”
