Speaking on condition of anonymity, Chief Justice John Glover Roberts, Jr. — the "Glover" is silent — announced today that the U.S. judiciary will keep its opinions to itself for the duration of April Fools’ Day.  Unidentifiable but independent sources verified the gist of the Chief’s secret press release.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-82), commenting in a rare beyond-the-grave interview, praised the magisterial hiatus, mumbling something about "foolish consistency", a "hobgoblin", and "little minds".  Apparently he believes a once-a-year quotidian moratorium the very opposite of foolishness.

The GEICO gecko had no comment.  At least not one Blawgletter could publish in a family blawg.
