Bush legacy lives on in a biased high court

A Rolling Meadows letter to the editor: John Roberts and Samuel Alito, members of the United States Supreme Court, were nominated to that body by President George W. Bush., with Roberts becoming the court's chief justice. Both have seemed determined to legislate from the bench, contrary to what they promised in their confirmation hearings. Democrats, knowing this would happen, held up the confirmation of both. In the end, "compromise" was reached and both were seated.
