haha, well don’t let me disturb your sleep! Dream on. I think what you posit would be great. I’d love nothing more than to see the Court correct its own misgivings. But I’m just looking at this from a legally pragmatic perspective. And I feel pretty comfortable suggesting that the Court likely wants to see more disagreement in order to make a resolution. Someone earlier mentioned the outcome of the Fifth Circuit case (Atty. Richard Gladden’s case). We have watched that case very closely. And we were a bit shocked at the outcome since it appeared to be a very strong case going forward. So, here’s a possibility. The Court sits on Snyder as it awaits the arrival of Gladden’s Petition out of the Fifth. Then there is possibly some real conflict to resolve. I don’t know. And this is crazy speculation at this time. Still, when it comes to the Supreme Court, crazy speculation seems more appropriate than anything else.
