01/17/2006: Supreme Court upholds federalism... for now.
Just received word that the Court today upheld the Oregon assisted suicide law in their 6-3 decision in Gonzalez v. Oregon. Good to know that there at least seems to be some area where the states can legislate without the Federal government overruling them.
Even better: a 6-3 decision, so even Alito's apparent confirmation won't result in a quick overturning of that decision. As long as John Paul Stevens holds out....
