Correction on Detail of Tasini Ruling

Allow me to bust myself for stating, in my January 2 post "Objections, Year 4 -- Resetting the Issues,", that the dissenters in the Supreme Court's 2001 Tasini v. Times decision were Stevens and Souter. The second dissenter was actually Breyer. So I've edited out altogether the reference to the details of the Court's alignment in that opinion.

In previous comments on Tasini, I've said variations on the line, "When you have a 7-2 opinion with Scalia and Ginsburg both in the majority, you've got a pretty darn good consensus." And I think that's the point.
