From The Onion: SCOTUS rules "It Depends"

The always amusing The Onion has this new funny article entitled "Supreme Court Reaches Landmark 'It Depends' Ruling."  Here is how the piece starts and ends:

In a landmark 8-1 decision, an uncharacteristically subdued Supreme Court ruled "it depends" in the case of Panetti v. Quarterman, leaving the issue of executing the mentally ill completely open-ended....

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote the lone dissenting opinion, in which she stated that she knew the correct decision was either yes or no, but couldn't say which one it should be.

The entire article is a fun read, and the last sentence suggests that the author was familiar with Justice Ginsburg work in Booker.
