 Statement Of Senator Patrick Leahy During Senate Judiciary Hearing On Hostility To Religious Expression In The Public ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-07)
The fundamental principle we upheld then and must uphold now is that our courts, the branch of government devoted to interpreting our Constitution and laws, must remain free of the pressures of the majority of the moment.
A healthy and independent judiciary sometimes is never more necessary than at times when there is impatience with the way the Supreme Court chooses to interpret the Constitution.
Therefore, we favor a strong judiciary, under law, rather than a judiciary that bends first in one popular direction, then in another.

 D.C. Preservation League: Major Issues
The D.C. Preservation League has a long-standing agreement with the developers of Square 488, a block that borders on the west side of Judiciary Square, NW, and is bounded by Fifth Street on the east, Sixth Street on the west, E Street on the south, and F Street on the north.
This square has a "Brutalist" firehouse on its northwest corner and is just across F Street from the Metro Center building, which is executed in the same style.
As with Square 488, however, the challenge is creating a design concept that relates well to preservation elements, maintains a sense of the historic nature of this side of the F Street block, and creates a new structure that acknowledges the importance of nearby St. Patrick's Church without overwhelming it.

Called Washington Infirmary, it provided for "the poor, disabled, and infirm persons." In 1842, Congress authorized the conversion of the old jail in the Judiciary Square into a hospital for disabled seamen and soldiers and the insane.

 Washington Places - Mt. Vernon Square : Union Station   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-07)
The area is a shadow of its former architectural glory: during the 1800s the street front was dominated by row housing of fairly consistent massing and depth; by 1957, the addition of garages, storage units, and auxiliary apartments began to transform the building footprints.
Today the most noticeable change is in the southern block between 5th and 4th Streets, where the massing of buildings has been completely repla ced by surface parking lots and by the Judiciary Square Apartments, which overwhelms the surrounding space.
On the northern side, boarded-up or burnt-out buildings and large surface parking lots dominate the streetfront.

It is civilized in a square, middle-class way, which is to say, urbanely dull.
The downtown is the most important location for political organisations, but not necessarily along the Federal Mall or Judiciary Square - the centre of the representative governmental buildings - but rather in the adjacent northern district that is still a residential neighbourhood.

Progressives shouldn't mourn the eventual passing of the filibuster, according to Smith, because progressives have an easier time entrenching their policies than conservative have with rolling back those policies.
One hitch: if conservatives do manage to stack the federal judiciary with the likes of Janice Rogers Brown, the courts may not be as deferential to progressive legislation in the 21st century as they were in the late 20th.
