Looks like the Roberts nomination could go either way

Billmon writes about the revelation that Judge John Roberts once did pro bono work supporting gay rights, something he failed to mention on a questionnaire. Excerpt:
I know! Maybe Roberts was seduced. You know how it goes: It's the oldest story in the book. The wife is out of town and the kids are off at camp. You've always wanted to experiment with the alternative legal lifestyle, and this time you just can't resist. So you pull on the tight plaid pants, put on just a trace of the missus's mascara, and wander down to that law library you've heard about -- the one where all the liberals go. And that's how it happens. You read a little William O. Douglas, knock back a few 9th Circuit opinions, and the next thing you know, you're going at it pro bono with some hot young hunk from the ACLU. And suddenly you realize what you've been missing all your life.
