i was wrong

i hate to admit when i'm wrong, but it's easier when i can blame it on someone else. SCOTUS has refused to hear the case of the unfortunate fellow i wrote about earlier who is having his land seized by his local gubmint via extortion by a private party. i'm reminded of a line from Billy Bragg's "Rotting on Remand" from Workers Playtime:
This isn't a court of justice, son. This is a court of law.
which is itself probably taken from a statement by the SCOTUS justice, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. how apropos.
