Tuesday marks the fourth anniversary of the Supreme Court's Citizens United v. FEC ruling, when the court ruled that corporations can spend unlimited amounts to influence elections. Our democracy is built on the basic premise that people - regardless of gender, creed, geography, states or religion - are politically equal. One person, one vote. The decision four years ago opened the floodgates for big money in our elections, enabling a small number of mega-donors to drown out the voices of average Americans.

In theory, the Supreme Court's evisceration of the Voting Rights Act sounds perfectly reasonable, even restrained. The majority opinion, written by Chief Justice John Roberts, does not eliminate the possibility that the government could require some jurisdictions to get pre-clearance from the federal government for changes to their voting systems to make sure they are not discriminatory against minorities. Rather, it merely holds that the criteria for determining which jurisdictions are covered, established in 1965, are no longer valid in a very changed world, and if Congress wants to continue the pre-clearance process, it needs to update its formula for inclusion.

WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court overturned a century-old restriction on corporations using their money to sway federal elections Thursday and ruled companies have a free-speech right to spend as much as they wish to persuade voters to elect or defeat candidates. In a 5-4 decision, the court's conservative bloc said corporations have the same First Amendment rights as individuals and, for that reason, the government cannot stop corporations from spending freely to help their favored candidates win elections.

New bocce courts have been opened at Cedar Lane Park. They were built to be used by Special Olympics Howard County for training and competition, but will also be open to the public. Life Scout Andy Byun, 15, of Mount Airy built the courts for his Eagle Scout project, with support from the Howard County Department of Recreation and Parks. He is a student at Glenelg High School. Bocce, which is similar to lawn bowling, originated in Italy. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held Monday at the park.

The federal tax court has ruled in favor of the Internal Revenue Service in a 14-year-old evasion case involving a now-dead lawyer who was one of the nation's leading tax advisers, millions of dollars in reported real estate kickbacks and a Supreme Court ruling that ended a long-standing practice of secrecy in tax court. And if that is not enough, it is probably not over. In the decision last week, Judge Harry A. Haines of the U.S. Tax Court ruled that the lawyer, Burton W. Kanter, and two associates had accepted kickbacks from the Pritzker family of Chicago, which owns the Hyatt hotels, and then evaded taxes on the payments.

JERUSALEM --In an important and controversial ruling, the Israeli Supreme Court threw out part of a law yesterday that prevented Palestinians from seeking compensation from Israel for damage from Israeli army activities in the occupied territories. The ruling, which was unanimous, opens the way for Palestinians harmed in "nonbelligerent" army operations in the West Bank or Gaza to seek redress for damage. But the court left standing a provision that bars compensation to Palestinians harmed in combat operations.

BOSTON - In the end, I'm hoping for his "deep regard" for the Supreme Court. I'm rooting for what John G. Roberts Jr. described as "a lump in my throat whenever I walked up those marble steps." President Bush's choice for the Supreme Court is no Sandra Day O'Connor. If Justice O'Connor was a moderate who became a swing vote, Judge Roberts is only ambidextrous on the squash court. He plays jurisprudence on the right side. It's no surprise that Mr. Bush picked this man with impeccable credentials.

It's going to be a bruiser. If you thought election 2004 and Terri Schiavo's last days were nasty confrontations in the so-called culture wars, just wait for the fight over who will fill Sandra Day O'Connor's U.S. Supreme Court seat. Ruptures over gay marriage, flag burning or displaying the Ten Commandments will feel like mere tremors compared with the cultural quake sure to erupt when the nation's differences become the weapons with which the Supreme Court's future is determined, political analysts say. Expect the "red" and the "blue" to go at it fiercely enough to leave the nation purple, or at least with some long-lingering bitter feelings.
