Were There Any Whales In Grant Park Last Tuesday Night?

Two things leap to mind after skimming the Supreme Court's decision in Winter v. National Resources Defense Council, No. 07-1239.

First: if there was any doubt about how beaked whales would have voted (if, that is, they had hands) last Tuesday, this opinion puts that doubt to rest. The conservative majority basically threw our marine mammal friends under the bus so that the Navy could train for enemy submarine invasions.

Second: enemy submarines? Does Al Qaeda have submarines? We know North Korea does. That hasn't worked out so well for them. Is China an "enemy"? If so, point taken.
