Fixing a non-problem
Here's the Register's editorial on the Supremes' decision on Indiana's voter-ID law, which requires a state or federal photo ID (essentially driver's license or passport) before voting. Hard to get excited. The problem the law was supposed to fix -- people voting in place of somebody else or with somebody else's credentials -- doesn't exist, but the solution is probably not too onerous and the court decided it wasn't unconstitutional.
