Supreme Guidance

Christmas came early this year when my father sent me an attractive pocket calendar for 2010, embossed with the Seal of the Supreme Court of the United States, from the Supreme Court Historical Society’s gift shop. I plan to use it but not necessarily to heed all the epigrams that adorn its week-at-a-glance views. The advice for the week of August 2-8 in particular struck me as a little dubious, under the circumstances: “You should live your own life and live up to your own expectations.” The author? Tiger Woods.
