News is good from people in attendance at the hearing.
Alito blew it out of the park. Brought up all the violence of unions and then said let me get this straight—two women are standing inside the buffer zone and one says, this place is safe; the other says this place is unsafe. Because of her speech the woman who says it is unsafe, could be arrested. Every time the femi nazi lawyer for the state called them protesters, Alito cut them right down. He said women are giving counsel and handing out literature.
There is an article in the Washington Post already http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/supreme-court-justices-question-size-of-buffer-zones-around-mass-abortion-clinics/2014/01/15/834f21c4-7e02-11e3-95c6-0a7aa80874bc_story.html?hpid=z4. Even Kagan seemed to be leaning our way. Although Roberts did not speak, Thomas showed something in a book he had open to Alito, and then Alito I think showed it to Roberts.
