On court-packing, stacking, etc.

The Post has this on too-smart law professors thinking up ways to get the Supreme Court to do what they want.

People who are aggrieved by the Supreme Court always think of ways to change it, not because they are high-minded but because they want to get different outcomes. And, everyone knows this, and so the proposals go nowhere - now as when Jefferson was president and Marshall the Chief Justice.
