And Let There Be Questions!

J Committee chairman Arlen Specter asked for assurance that "no deals had been cut with the White House" to overturn Roe v Wade.

A little known jurist named Judge Nathan Hecht, who serves on the Texas Supreme Court, provided some of the most sound commentary of the entire debacle. "Legal issues and personal issues are just two different things. Judges do it all the time," said he.
