Not that we needed confirmation of this, but we got our first real sense of where Roberts sits on the Court. The Supremes decided 6-3 that the federal government is wrong to think they can ban state laws allowing physician-assisted suicide. The 3 dissenters? Thomas, Scalia and Roberts. We can probably safely assume that Alito would have made 4 here. Pray for Justice Stevens' continued good health.
