Since 1789, the Supreme Court hardly ever ventured into making decisions that would redefine the political landscape. Many legal scholars argue that was not how the founders nor the majority of the courts themselves envisioned their roles. In modern times we are all too familiar with the partisanship surrounding the court and should all know and understand those big decisions throughout our history that have divided us along racial, cultural and religious lines, empowered the wealthy, or interpreted the constitution written for a different time in a different world, bending us away from the more perfect union of our futures. As I stepped outside on this steel gray, black and white morning, I could once again smell the sweet incense of the rule of law and democracy and I filled my lungs with it.
