It is far too long to post to the list, but yesterday's NY Times magazine 
section has an eye-opening article titled "The Unregulated Offensive" by 
Jeffrey Rosen. 
(http://www.nytimes.com/2005/04/17/magazine/17CONSTITUTION.html) It looks 
at a group of rightwing legal scholars including Douglas Ginsberg, who was 
nixed for a Supreme Court seat a while back, and the U. of Chicago's 
Richard Epstein. They basically want to dismantle the last vestiges of the 
New Deal and hope to get one of their people on the Supreme Court. They are 
disciples of Ayn Rand and John Locke and look at the McKinley era as a 
golden age.
