The unbalanced balance of power

Here's another (mercifully?) short post to accommodate Blogger's delicate sensibilities. Check out this editorial talking about the dangerous accretion of power in a Constitutionally unfettered Supreme Court. The bit I loved best was this:

The Court declared that the death penalty was now unconstitutional for minors due to a supposed "emerging national consensus" that the death penalty was wrong. The last time we checked, the Supreme Court was supposed to use the Constitution as its guide. If anyone's to take notice of an "emerging national consensus," it's the legislature.
