Plenty of eloquent words have already been written on the Court’s pair of historic rulings today on same-sex marriage, so I won’t bother repeating them. Of course, I’m thrilled that so many couples will now receive full legal recognition and protection. Marriage equality will exist in a patchwork fashion for the next several years, but these decisions set us on a path towards a more just society. As William Gibson said, the future is already here—it’s just not evenly distributed.
And I demand that some Caribbean nation establish the Antonin Scalia School of Legal Argle-Bargle. The man deserves no less.
