"Scalialicious!"

"Frankfurter was born too soon for the Web, but I'm sure that, had it been possible, there would have been the equivalent of Ninomania for Frankfurter."
-- Mark Tushnet
(I agree, and commented here.)

    :: Monday, June 21, 2010 ::
    We conclude that the material-support statute is constitutional as applied to the particular activities plaintiffs have told us they wish to pursue. We do not, however, address the resolution of more difficult cases that may arise under the statute in the future.
    Unspaz, everybody: limited holding here.
    This litigation concerns 18 U. S. C. §2339B, which makes it a federal crime to “knowingly provid[e] material support or resources to a foreign terrorist organization.” 1 Congress has amended the definition of “material support or resources” periodically.... [Emphasis added]
    Maybe some day Congress will amend the definition to include the knowing splitting of infinitives. Since the Court a moment earlier referred to the Anti-Terrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act, we might call such an amendment the "Anti-Terror Against the English Language and Effective Death Penalty for Sloppy Writers Act."

    Justice Scalia never splits infinitives. Surprised he didn't shove off from this part of the opinion; you know, like a grammatical form of legislative history!
