Roberts parses Supreme Court mission

Worcester Telegram & Gazette News--Roberts cites challenges: Chief justice avoids politics.
U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr., spoke at my alma mater's commencement exercise this year; his wife's on of the alumnae (see, my A.B. was not for naught) and also on the board of directors. He made a distinction with regard to the Supreme Court that I wanted to share:

Mr. Robert’s short commencement address was filled with advice and humor but was devoid of politics.

At one point, however, Mr. Roberts intimated that his Supreme Court would plow a less expansive judicial path than its predecessors by stressing the role of the nation’s highest judiciary is to interpret law and not set it.
