The views of several justices now sitting on the Court about how various parts of the Constitution should be interpreted bother all hell out of me. I have read Judge Bork's explanation of his positions on certain issues that agitated some Senators, and they make very good sense to me. I believe some of the people deciding Bork's fate just weren't quite bright enough to understand the reasoning in some of his writings. In one of his books Bork himself spoke quizzically about the questions Arlen Specter, in particular, would ask him during the hearings on his nomination. He said the two of them sometimes spoke alone, and he recalled feeling like he was back teaching con law at Yale, trying to explain a difficult point to a student who seemed to be trying hard but just didn't get it.
What is your opinion of the Warren and Burger Courts?
