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…

miles to Isengard: 392

Brown vs Board of Ed (integration)
Dred Scott (if you don't know this one, go back to school)
NYT vs. US (release of secret papers)
Standard Oil vs US (take a wild guess)
Nixon vs. US (likewise, wild guess)

and there's been at least one Steelworkers Union case decided there, but be damned if I can remember details off the top of my head.

Um. Yes, I am not much impressed with Guv'nor Palin, no. Although I can understand blocking out anything having to do with Watergate from her memory.... that whole "lying under oath, refusing to testify" thing is a touchy subject...
