Today's judicial lesson: Judges don't vote

Since word has seeped out that Miers would probably decide to overturn Roe v. Wade, there have been many, many people saying that she'd "vote" to overturn Roe. That is incorrect. Judges do not vote. They come to decisions. They do not vote. "Vote" is a term of convenience for some, and the product of ignorance for others. Please, everyone, stop saying a judge would "vote" one way or another.
