American Dictatorship: Retired Supreme Court Justice Issues Dire Warning

Oh yeah -- don't forget to check out Slate's coverage of Nina Totenberg's great catch and her NPR story on 3/10/06 about retired Justice Sandra Day O'Connor's warning in a speech at Georgetown University on March 9.

I'm no big fan of O'Connor -- she has proved herself a committed Republican and conservative and was the swing vote who gave the 2000 election to Bush. But ToteNberg gets KUDOS and mainstream media gets THUMBS DOWN (again, but what else is new?).

"We must be ever-vigilant against those who would strong-arm the judiciary. . . It takes a lot of degeneration before a country falls into dictatorship, but we should avoid these ends by avoiding these beginnings."

Question of the month: Why did the media, other than Totenberg & NPR, miss it? Will they play catch up or just continue to ignore it?
