"From the foregoing samples, you may better understand why the court does not plan to permit televising oral arguments any time soon."Are you kidding? This is why it should be on television?
You know, the fabulous 7th Circuit judge Richard A. Posner wrote a great chapter titled "What Am I? A Potted Plant?"
And I just saw a potted plant on television.

Bring on the 9,000 cows! We're dying out here in TV-land!
