TomN's comment history

As has been discussed in the professional blogs, the public has almost instantaneous access through CSPAN and other vehicles to listen to argument. First, the Supreme Court is the 800lb gorilla and these types are commentary can be posted each and every day without response. Second, I tend to agree that once cameras are introduced the video will be "cut and paste" just as 60 Minutes has done for years.

I find it so confusing that a requirement for independent identification is so confounding. You need a photo id for virtually every transaction a citizen engages. You need it to write a check, often in conjunction with use of a credit card, to pass security to "enter a State facility" (Go to the TN Secretary of State's Office or other office without such an ID), to fly, to rent a car and to perform a vast variety of transactions. Being in and out of Tennessee courts, there is a vast population of persons who have already possessed an official ID. If your not trying to cheat, what is the big deal?
