Dahlia on Moussaoui's potential guilty plea. "Somehow, even if he's the wrong guy being executed for the wrong conspiracy, this case will prove to the world that the American court system really works."

Washington Post article on Blake, the Miranda case out of Maryland. It is my belief that if the Supreme Court chips off the rule of Edwards, then Miranda will be the equivalent of the 'voluntariness' standard, which O'Connor espouses.

Were I in your shoes, I would not worry too much. The court has had several chances in the past few years to weaken Miranda dramatically, but has not done so.

The court has also expressed concern about police techniques that appear intended to thwart Miranda, and has disallowed those.

It won't change much, if at all.
