Aphorism of the Day

"Those who would renegotiate the boundaries between church and state must therefore answer a difficult question: Why would we trade a system that has served us so well for one that has served others so poorly?"

-Sandra Day O'Connor in McCreary County, Kentucky, et al. v. American Civil Liberties Union of Kentucky et al. (which struck down the government display of the 10 commandments). [Link via Volokh.]

Vikram reminds me that I need to post these more often.
