The Supreme Court has struck down a Texas law forbidding gay sex, voting 6-3. You can probably guess which justices swung which way. I think this may qualify as an honest-to-goodness Landmark Decision. Can you imagine the circuit parties that are being planned down at the other end of I-35 right now?

Also, SCOTUSBlog is a nice weblog for all you fans of the Supremes out there (and you know who you are). It also has one of the ugliest names I’ve ever had the displeasure of encountering. Seriously: say it out loud a couple of times, and then gargle with mouthwash for a few seconds to get the taste out.
