, can be better defined if compared with other types of
addicts. There is little difference between the voyeur waiting for hours by a
window for forty seconds of nudity and the compulsive gambler hunching on a long

than their public lives. Denial leads the list of ways addicts distort reality.

Marbury v. Madison, one of the first Supreme Court cases asserting the power of judicial review, is an effective argument for this power; however, it lacks direct textual basis for the decision. Marshall managed to get away with this deficiency because of the silence on many issues and the vague wording of the Constitution. During...
