THREE BROTHERS, TOGETHER AGAIN.
The three brothers are together again.
Where once it never rained till after sundown, By eight a.m. the morning fog had flown... Don't let it be forgot That once there was a spot For one brief shining moment that was known As Camelot.
The Supreme Court announced yesterday a rare September re-argument in the "Hillary the Movie" case which was argued in March. The issue is whether the court should uphold a 1990 ruling upholding restrictions on corporate spending to support or oppose political candidates. At the original argument a government attorney answered a hypothetical that the government could criminalize the distribution of books by corporations advocating for a political candidate. The answer drew gasps in the courtroom and pure shock from Justice Alito.
