Crying ‘wolf!’

The tiff between lawmakers and Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno is heating up. Both sides should temper the rhetoric lest they lock themselves into unreasonable positions that betray the spirit of the law they purport to uphold.

That is a desideratum anyone should be able to take to the bank!
