Yeah, well not even Thomas, let alone Scalia rates an "always".
This is an interesting meme - that Kennedy may be the best civil liberties justice currently serving. I first heard it a couple of weeks ago. It's jarring, and even thinking about it a bit, still disconcerting. But I have to say that in giving the idea a fair hearing it may not be as crazy as it first sounds. That said, if it is at least a partially true, what a sad statement it is on SCotUS.
