Before Marbury v. Madison was decided in 1803, at which time the Supreme Court decided its job was to interpret the Constitution and seized all power, the Justices did not have a whole lot of work to do.
So, they rode their horses and drove their buggies to the court session, drank wine, and chatted the afternoon away. (Seriously, I'm not making this up). That would have been a nice job.
Having a slow day, and leaving early because I'm riding earlier than usual (4:30). I'd like to go to lunch now.
