For chief, an extra detail

This year, Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr.’s summer vacation in Maine included more than just family and fun: there was a security detail.

The extra precautionary measure was taken due to the “toxic climate” that followed the Supreme Court’s ruling upholding most of the federal health care law, wrote the Daily Beast’s Daniel Klaidman. [HT: ThinkProgress].

The detail was present for every minute of the family’s respite – from the hiking trails to the trips to the general store, Klaidman wrote.
