Methinks Thou Art Too O’erhasty, Madam

Lynne Kiesling

Upon reflection, I think I may have been a little too harsh on Justice Souter, given that the transcripts are not out yet. He may have been referring to “you” as the state of New York getting ripped off on tax revenues.

I stand by my claim, though, that patronizing paternalism is one of the legs of the wholesaler rent seeking stool. I reserve judgement on the full tenor of Justice Souter’s remarks until I can read the full transcript.
