LINKS: Chris Lawrence and Kevin Yaroch wonder why the Supremes granted cert only to deny Newdow standing. I tend to think the relevant fact is that everyone signed on to dismissing it on standing grounds--which might be symbolically important for reasons discussed here. My guess is that they weren't really sure where to land on the standing issue, but they had an idea that it might have wide-reaching consequences if they skipped over it. Just a theory, though.
