Thanks for reading the piece. I couldn't use the allusion in the piece itself, as it would have taken more space to explain it than I could spare. But the Italians have an expression that someone is the "zoccolo duro," of a cause or a movement. They intend the hard clog that holds a person safe in a slip or fall down a ravine or hillside. Black was the zoccolo duro of civil liberties on the Court. Not only is their a court majority that prizes the interests of the state over citizens, but there is no one like Black on the Court who will stand without exception for the primacy of the Bill of Rights.
