Roper v. Simmons

Antonin Scalia gives another excellent exposition of American federalism.

Most cites online quote only the last few paragraphs of his preface, but the entire 23 page dissent is worth reading, and remembering for the next time somebody denounces Scalia as a right-wing kook.

Too bad he's in the minority on this one, but as he observes, give the matter another 15 years...
