Tom Tomorrow turns philosophe in the fnial panel of today's 'toon about the week that was for the SCOTUS. In the final panel, Justice Samuel Alito deflects criticism of the use of ineffective drugs in prison esecutions by asserting that such criticism as an extreme form of facile logic, i.e., superficial reasoning. And has his chorus accusing Alito of cruel tautology, i.e., an unfeeling statement of the same thing twice in different words. It was, indeed, a time to try men's (and women's) minds. If this is (fair & balanced) present-day rendition of "MacBeth," so be it.
