RE: The Timpanist


Jon, maybe it’s selective memory on my part, but do you remember reading a graph like this in the New York Times prior to Pryor’s confirmation (emphasis mine)?

But Mr. Pryor was careful not to take his conservative activism too far. He was successful in overturning a federal order barring student-led prayer in Alabama’s public schools, yet rejected the argument of Mr. James, the former governor, that teacher-led prayer was acceptable because the Bill of Rights did not apply to the states.
