Although your assignment of this case to me indicated that you had tentatively determined it should be a signed opinion, the attached draft has at least the virtue of brevity, and makes little new law. I therefore suggest that if the draft becomes an opinion of the Court, it should be a per curiam rather than a signed opinion.
