Dagger in hand

A man of prodigious fortune, coming to add his opinion to some light discussion that was going on casually at his table, began precisely thus: "It can only be a liar or an ignoramus who will say otherwise than," and so on. Pursue that philosophical point, dagger in hand.

--Michel de Montaigne, Of the art of discussion.

UH OH: I bet someone that the Ninth Circuit wouldn't take the pledge case en banc. It was a risky bet, but not a crazy one. I figured that most of them really don't think it's wrong, and that most of them would prefer not to have to weigh in on it publicly if they don't have to. But I'm starting to think I can kiss my five bucks goodbye. Still, it ain't over till the fat lady counts the votes.
