NOTED -- "Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. said Sunday that he was seeking greater consensus on the Supreme Court, adding that more consensus would be likely if controversial issues could be decided on the 'narrowest possible grounds.'" Sounds more like minimalism and less like originalism. One wonders how Chief Justice Roberts's comments were received in originalist legal circles...

Update: Cass sunstein likes what he heard.
