Opinion page editor Rick Holmes and other writers blog about national politics and issues. Holmes & Co. is a Blog for Independent Minds, a place for a free-flowing discussion of policy, news and opinion. This blog is the online cousin of the Opinion section of the MetroWest Daily News in Framingham, Mass. As such, our focus starts there and spreads to include Massachusetts, the nation and the world. Since successful blogs create communities of readers and writers, we hope the \x34& Co.\x34 will also come to include you.

Another piece of evidence as to who won this round. When you get the opinion editor of a major liberal newspaper to take the position that the federal government can impose martial law, suspend civil liberties and torture suspects because the majority supports such conduct, then we are living in a totalitarian state. If you believe in the rule of law, and the constitutional process, then you must view the bright lines as inviolate and Carmen Ortizism as a gross affront to liberty. If we believed in majority rule as a founding principle of our society, we would be unlikely to have women voters, free blacks  or interracial couples. Fortunately, our Bill of Rights was crafted to protect us from the arbitrary whim of the majority. When mob rules becomes the basis of our acceptance of unconstitutional behavior, and Rick goes along, we can comfortably say that the terrorists have won.
