Mortals on the high court
"We are not final because we are infallible," Supreme Court Justice Robert Jackson famously observed, "but we are infallible only because we are final."

Like the rest of us mortals, Scalia, it turns out, is fallible. He made an embarrassing whopper of a mistake in a dissent Tuesday.
