Great Greenhouse affect on consensus
Linda Greenhouse has this terrific Reporter's Notebook entry today entitled, "As to the Direction of the Roberts Court: The Jury Is Still Out." Headline notwithstanding, her piece does not discuss the jury trial issues raised in Claiborne and Rita. But, in it reinforces my sense of the new Chief's limited ability to forge consensus and my broader instinct that "for anyone tempted by the joys of punditry to proclaim that the Roberts court is clearly one thing or another, this is a time to sit back, wait and see."

But you left out the best part - that the overhyped reports that Justice Ginsburg seemed frail as she left the bench at the end of last week's arguments were easily explained: she literally lost one of her shoes !!
