VOA, the Supreme Court, and the Resistance?

I don’t know that the Voice of America intended to signal the rest of the world that the rule of law yet prevails in the United States when it commenced a series on the Supreme Court this weekend, but right now I’m for anything that might bolster popular support for an independent judiciary, at home as well as abroad.  VOA urges us to watch, in the coming months “for text, audio, and video that explain what the Supreme Court is, why it is important (and disputed) in American culture, and how the justices ruled on some of the most important cases in modern U.S. history.”  The first post is The Rise of the Supreme Court.
