Fennelly: Friendly rivalry grows among childhood pals

MONTREAL — It's been 20 years, but Donna Callahan can still see and hear them out in front of the house on Groveview Circle in suburban Rochester, N.Y. Her Ryan is on the cul-de-sac with his big brother Mike. So are the Gionta boys: Mike's buddy Brian and his kid brother, Stephen. Maybe some others join in, but it's always hockey — street hockey, roller hockey, any hockey.

ObamaCare update: Florida AG Bondi upbeat

Posted Mar 27, 2012 by Tom Jackson

Updated Mar 27, 2012 at 05:41 PM

Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi likes the overall tilt of questioning—an indication of the justice’s leanings, say SCOTUS watchers—in the second day of oral arguments over ObamaCare.

“Today we defended Americans’ individual liberty by arguing that the federal government cannot force us to purchase private health insurance from cradle to grave. The health care act’s individual mandate far exceeds the limited and enumerated powers that the Constitution grants the federal government.

“I was encouraged by the justice’s questions, especially the ones that exposed the federal government’s inability to identify any meaningful limits on Congress’s power. As the states have argued all along, if the federal government can compel citizens to purchase health insurance they do not want, then it can force us to purchase anything.”

Even, as Antonin Scalia noted darkly, broccoli. Sheesh.
