It's June 30th, so time for me to sign off.  Thanks to Dan and all at prawfs for permitting me to spend one of the loveliest months of the year with you, a mild and pleasant time when the summer is full of promise.  July 4th fireworks are the starting gun for summer's second half, when family vacations vie with back to school sales.  So savor the fleeting beauty of the season.  In celebration of the final week of the SCOTUS term, and because many of you will need a game for your car ride this week-end, I offer a final puzzler.  Below are two lines excerpted from one of my favorite argument exchanges this term--two quotes from two Justices (although not sequential).  Who were the Justices, and what was the argument?

"So slow down from the rhetoric . . ."

"But don't be rhetorical."

Wishing everyone a peaceful and safe summer and the very best article placement that you can get!

Justice Sotomayor: "So slow down from the rhetoric . . ."

The argument was Schwarzenneger v. Plata.
