JUNE 27, 2013

     The Supremes did not flatly rule in favor of same-sex marriage, but they did say a state ban on it is unconstitutional and a same sex couple wanting to marry can go to a number of states--13, I think, including now California, the most populous, to do so.

     The Washington Post seemed to have it about right:
 "Sometimes the Court makes history outright,...Other times it moves more deliberately, facilitating changes already underway."  I expect we won't see great, sudden changes from these decisions because, as the Post noted, the changes are already happening.

 Critics of same-sex marriage booed, practitioners cheered.  I like a woman quoted as saying, "When we heard the news, the family started crying with happiness, except the babies.  They slept right through it."  I hope they prosper.
