Now the attack from the Left:

I've highlighted on this blog the attack on the independence of the judiciary from the (loony) right. Now the left is having its turn (it's Jeff Rosen, so I won't categorize him as "loony"; but this piece is loony).

Just looking at the pictures -- especially Richard A. Epstein's unrecognizable and contorted grimace -- of the conservative-libertarian intellectuals that the article attacks, tells you all you need to know about the fairness of the article. Although the photographer did a good job translating how they are portrayed in the written word to the photos: as a bunch of scheming capitalist robber-barons from a silent 1920s movie.
