Silliness

Justice Stewart, in dissenting with a majority overturning a 1965 Connecticut statute forbidding married couples from using contraception:

I think this is an uncommonly silly law. [But] we are not asked in this case to say whether we think this law is unwise, or even asinine. We are asked to hold that it violates the United States Constitution. And that I cannot do.

On second thought, let’s not go there. ‘Tis a silly place.

In fact, let’s cut this off right now. It’s all getting too silly.

    “The next day at school, you were nothing if you couldn’t recite the Python lines from show the night before.”
