Go U.S. Supreme Court!

I am amazed and thrilled by the recent trio of decisions from the U.S. Supreme Court: legalizing same-sex marriage across the USA, upholding nationwide subsidies under the Affordable Care Act, and allowing proof of de facto discrimination by showing disparate impact. The court’s centrists, Justice Anthony Kennedy and Chief Justice John Roberts, have cast their votes for social progress and equality.

It is awe inspiring to me that these ground-breaking issues were resolved by the moderate middle of the court at the intersection of the jurists’ individual consciences, dizzying social change, and basic values embodied in the Constitution.
