In another landmark decision by the US Supreme Court (see previous item for another...), they went 5-3 on reducing the original $5 billion award from the 11 million gallon Exxon Valdez crude oil spill in Alaska's Prince William Sound 19 years ago. Now ExxonMobil only has to pay $500 million damages -- which is about the amount they're skimming off us at the gas pumps every couple of months. Judge Alioto stepped aside on this one, seeing as he owns Exxon stock. I don't know that the label "Justices" really fits these black-robed clowns any more. How about Supreme Court Dunceses?
