Once upon a time, you ruled so fine

June 24, 2008

What’s the world coming to? The chief justice of the United States Supreme Court quotes a pop icon  (pdf file) in his dissent on a court ruling:

The absence of any right to the substantive recovery means that respondents cannot benefit from the judgment they seek and thus lack Article III standing. “When you got nothing, you got nothing to lose.” Bob Dylan. Like a Rolling Stone, on Highway 61 Revisited (Columbia Records 1965).

Cool. And, believe it or not, that’s exactly what I got out of that song, too. How does it feel, Babe, to be out on your own, no direction home, with no Article II standing?
