Oh yeah, that fucking district.  I don't know how it slipped my mind, but of course that district is the one that includes Texas.  Duh.

Yeah, that's the federal district court that forced a Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage, since every other district court ruled in favor of gay marriage.

Joseph, if I understand correctly, the lower court ruling UPHELD the law, so a 4-4 decision would have been disastrous.  Justice Kennedy was the key factor here, and I can't help but notice that Larry, Curly and Moe wrote some rather "sour-grapes" dissents!

Still, this is a VERY BIG DEAL and I for one and glad of it!

I'm going to start volunteering for this sort of thing soon, actually.

Amazing news! All the more reason to help like-minded friends who haven't already done so register, get proper ID if they need it, and VOTE!

Judges for federal district courts and appeals courts are appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate as well.

Nice ... and a 5-3, not just a 4-4 upholding of a lower court's ruling.  For all of the crap that Kennedy votes for, which you would think would be a blatant violation of the first amendment, at least he's firmly behind reproductive rights.

Of course, since there's never a religious argument made in favor of an anti-choice law — at least not officially — since most (but not all) of the zealots behind the legislation aren't stupid enough to stick something like that onto it, there's no reason for Kennedy to flip.

Hopefully we can get a more consistent replacement for Kennedy, when he goes.  Sadly, Roberts and Alito are probably going to be around for a long time.  Thomas is a bit older, but I think he's in pretty good shape.

In the "you can't make this stuff up" category, PayPal holds a panel to discuss workplace gender equality, and all male panel.

Like over here? I never wore a bra until the weight made me buy one, somewhere between 30 and 40.

Comment by Grinning Cat on November 4, 2015 at 8:25pm

Heh! Also the guy nervously asking his mother on the phone, "So how do you wash a bra?"

I wouldn't mind a society where wearing a bra or not, according to a woman's own choice and comfort, is as much of a nonissue as wearing a watch or not.
