"How Republican Justices Evolve Leftward"

Retiring Justice John Paul Stevens sometimes claims that he didn't drift left, it was the Court that moved to the right as he stood still. Stuart Taylor, Jr. at National Journal's Ninth Justice explains why this theory doesn't really stand up to scrutiny.

P.S.: A Washington Post editorial on Stevens claims "his voice was consistently raised on behalf of those vulnerable to government excesses." Jacob Sullum provides a correction on that one.
