Applying the law
[Consider the distinction between how laws are enforced against the government and how they're enforced against the people.] Some people may prefer a strict application of the law across the board. Some may prefer a lenient application of the law across the board. A case can be made for both. I also think a case can be made for strict application of the law as applied to the government, but a lenient application as applied to the people. But the least defensible position, it seems to me, is the one that dominates: Strict justice for the people and leniency for the government. [Emphasis his.]
