    I heard rumors that "words mean things" and laws are interpreted by the "plain meaning" of their language, so anybody can plainly see that "courtroom" and "courthouse" mean the same thing, yessir.

    There's a judge's dictionary that comes with the Judge's English course.

    Judges sometimes fail to resist the temptation to exercise political power.

    Many here cheer them on so long as those cheering agree with the result, unwittingly providing support for the demise of liberties they cherish.

    Judge Bork's 1990 book "The Tempting of America" extensively covers his view of this judicial activism topic.

    Another good read, and it is short: The Law by Frédéric Bastiat

    Here is one link to a free pdf or ebook version:
