Analysis: Supreme Court term ends with no easy way to label it

Washington (CNN) - It's a familiar refrain from the media-shy U.S. Supreme Court: Judge us by what we write in our rulings, not in oral arguments, speeches or interviews.

But the court term that ended this week in dramatic fashion reveals how difficult it can be to create a coherent picture of this dynamic bench, one that moves easily, if stealthily, across ideological lines on a range of hot-button cases.

    How about (the never ending saga, of people so out of touch that they can not, and will not relate to the people), supreme court follies of 2012-through-2013. They've shown how to sidestep and avoid issues since time eternal.
