Well Done, Dunphy


Over at the NRO homepage you’ll find a terrific piece by Jack Dunphy about last week’s decision in Jones v. City of Los Angeles, in which “a panel of the Ninth Circuit created the constitutional right to be a bum.” I had been thinking about blogging about the case here, but I was so flabbergasted by this abuse of the Eighth Amendment that I hardly knew where to begin. Thanks for weighing in, Jack!
