Supreme Court meme & other stuff

As ganked from nwhyte/Nicholas, As evidenced by Katie Couric, Sarah Palin is unable to name any Supreme Court Case other than Roe v. Wade.

The Rules: Post info about ONE Supreme Court decision, modern or historical your lj. (Any decision, as long as it’s not Roe v. Wade.)

Loving v. Virginia, in which the Supreme Court ruled there could be no lawful impediment to interracial marriages.

This is clearly the same ruling, or the precedent for the ruling, that will eventually be applied to gay marriage in the US, and it blows my tiny little mind that we even have to fight about it.

In other news, yesterday’s pilates session has left my tummy sore enough to be amusing without being debilitating. That’s just the right amount of sore. :) Also, today marks 3 weeks without sweets. I didn’t lose any weight this week, but I’m not too worried about that. I did have a dream last night that I was eating french toast ice cream and some kind of pie, though…

more editing

Muaha. I am encouraged by commenters to continue this play by play editing process.

I don’t even know *what* today’s goal is. Reaching page 500 seems like an extremely lofty one, given that 2 days of this has gotten me to page 275original/250new. On the other hand, I’ve passed the “I can really take big chunks out” stage, so this might go faster. Or it might go more slowly, because to cut I’m going to have to be very persnikity. I guess I’ll see.

Stats for the day: I seem to have cut a pathetic one page out of the 95 I went through today. That’s kind of lame. Still, I’m halfway through the book now. I’m going to have to pick up the pace, though, if I want to get it turned in early enough to make my editor think I’m a genius.
