Just because the subject matter of PJ's post is non-technical
does not make it political. (The reverse can also hold true:
some technical issues, e.g. DRM can be highly political.)

5000? 6671? Change happens

Its the nature of the beast. But I'm not so sure this PJ covering the Supreme Court decision on ACA is such a radical departure. She got similar criticism early on when she chose to write about cases unrelated to SCO vs World+Dog. Her remark then essentially was "Its my personal blog. SCO vs IBM wasn't the first topic I covered, and won't be the last. I write about what interests me. Otherwise, what's the point?"

Beats me. PJ was also reluctant to cover Apple vs Psystar on grounds of who here could possibly be so perversely interested in a case with no possible impact on the Free Software community and with all the inherent predictability of a steamroller?

Turns out quite a few, and PJ agreed to do a few articles "in her spare time".

Heh.

A similar argument might be made today. A few months ago PJ mentioned in an off-topic comment that "constitutional issues are always topical." Me, I suspect she took more than a passing interest in the ACA case as it arose, and is secretly glad for the opportunity to explain Judge Robert's decision.

Teachers can be like that. Part of their personal creed and calling.

It's not technical but it is legal.

As in Grok Law.

Except that todays post doesn't even discuss the politics.

The entire post is devoted to analyzing and explaining the courts decision and
that is within Groklaw's scope.
