Must be a slow news day. Headlines from the Comcast homepage's "top stories" include:

"Woman Stabs Couple to Steal Baby" (Ok, granted, this one draws some interest.)

"La Toya Jackson: 'Michael was Murdered.'" (Hard facts from the second most screwed up of the Jacksons, I guess.)

"Hurricane Darby Forms" (Hey, Terrence Trent is the first hurricane of the season. Hurrah.)

And finally:

"Pres. Obama Hits Burger Joint" (Wow, with all the hubbub yesterday about the firing of General McChrystal, this seems too jarring to add on top of the controversy...)

Now all they have to do is outlaw the manufacture of Firearms and ammunition for sale to others...thus forcing those who want a fire arm to go out and make their own.

If you like this decision, you should read Justice Stevens' dissent carefully. Your mind will expand.

"So long as the requirements of fundamental fairness are always and everywhere respected, it is not clear that greater liberty results from the jot-for-jot application of a provision of the Bill of Rights to the States. Indeed, it is far from clear that proponents of an individual right to keep and bear arms ought to celebrate today's decision."
