Obnoxious Supreme Court rulings and… comics?

Among this week’s obnoxious Supreme Court rulings (to summarize: students can have their freedom of speech limited in the name of the “War on Drugs”/whatever it is schools don’t like; wealthy corporations can spend as much as they want via influential political ads since *they* have “freedom of speech”, undermining the McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform law; desegregation efforts in schools can’t use race as a factor), comes yesterday’s throwing out of a 96-year-old antitrust law against price floors/price fixing, dragging out the tired conservative argument about it being “for the good of the free market and competition”, when more likely the price of some stuff is bound to go up (and who knows how it’ll affect Internet commerce).

Comics Worth Reading ponders how it might or might not affect DC and Marvel’s sales of comic books.
