This makes sense...

...If you are schizoid.

Yesterday, the Supremes ruled that the Ten Commandments could not be displayed in a Kentucky Courthouse.

Today, they ruled the Commandments could be displayed at the Texas State Capital.

Sandra Day O'Connor played a decisive role by voting against the Kentucky display and in favor of the Texas monument.

Apparently, the Kentucky version seemed to endorse the Commandments along with their religious implications, while the Texas tablets merely acknowledged them and their role in shaping western legal concepts.

It does make sense. You just have to think about it to figure it out.

I guess this is good news... kind of. Especially if you are one of the lawyers who gets to work out a bunch of new cases in light of these rulings.

Does this mean the Alabama monument can go back up?
