    Justices Harlan and Stevens in Cohen and Pacifica managed to write out the whole word. I guess justices these days are more modest than they were.

    @Joe: Modest in their language, perhaps, but not necessarily judicially.

    It’s too bad that Moreno wasn’t nominated for the Court. He would have said “fuck” – not that he was ever vulgar, far from it, but he was not afraid of language.

  4. James says:

    “The justices’ discomfort reflects that of much of society. Indeed, they could not bring themselves to actually say the F-word at oral argument.” Apparently, neither could you! The word is “fuck,” just FYI.
