Noted with pleasure

On the conservative U.S. Supreme Court's hearings yesterday into the contested right to bear arms, Dana Milbank, a Washington Post columnist with a fine eye for Beltway irony, wrote:

"The justices, protected by well-armed officers of the U.S. Marshals Service, were a bit insulated from the case they were hearing. Those attending yesterday's argument had to pass through two metal detectors and submit their belongings to X-ray and hand inspections. Even the D.C. police chief, Cathy Lanier, had to surrender her firearm to enter the chamber."

Today's full column is here.
