I told them they were great sales people. One agent told me, “This is just the way we are”. Right.. Any news that the Fourth Amendment is still being actively enforced by the courts is good news. At oral argument in Rodriguez v. United States, a case involving drug sniffing dogs, Justice Sotomayor urged that if the arguments made by the Justice Department’s lawyer were accepted, the Fourth Amendment would become “a useless piece of paper.” On Monday, in an engaged opinion written by Justice Ginsburg, the Supreme Court rejected those arguments and breathed some life into an essential check on government power..

After three days at sea, we reach the city of Ningbo. Arriving into port at night we are presented with an almost nightmare vision, a Blade Runner like landscape of glowing lights and smokestacks painting the low cloud ceiling orange.

Bush.
