Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. And if you are one of a very special group of nine folks in Washington D.C., you are entitled to a legal opinion. Such opinions, from the nice men and women in the black robes in that big marble building with the “Supreme Court” sign out front, effectively carry the power of law, as they interpret the Constitution in the 21st Century.  One thing we all agree on is that we like the court’s rulings when we agree with them, and we are unhappy with these jurists when we disagree.

U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette says she isn’t taking anything for granted in the June primary, when she faces her first Democratic challenger in 14 years. “I always run hard,” DeGette, 58, told The Colorado Statesman on Saturday after a 90-minute debate with challenger Chuck Norris. “As I’ve said, I think I need to make my case to the voters as to why they should rehire me. I’m happy to be here, and I’m happy to let people know.” Norris, 68, a geologist and longtime Democratic activist, said the electorate is restless and growing, and that voters are ready for a change.
