Highlights of Roper highlights

As is to be expected, there is lots of media coverage of Wednesday's Supreme Court argument in Roper v. Simmons, the case exploring whether it is still constitutional to execute persons who committed capital crimes before turning eighteen. Some of the longer pieces I have seen come from the New York Times, Boston Globe, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, USA Today, Bloomberg News, Knight Ridder.

Relatedly, you can hear Nina Totenberg doing her usual fine SCOTUS work for NPR at this link, and the always entertaining and amusing Dahlia Lithwick of Slate adds her distinctive insights here.

UPDATE: Howard Bashman does his usual amazing job collecting news stories here, and he also continues to promise post his thoughts about the case soon.
