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…

Can't name a single one outside Roe v. Wade and that's only because the media hasn't shut up about it since it went through.

Most of the cases that have caught my attention never made it to the supreme court...Of course, I'm not taking this seriously as I'm still laughing that there's a supreme court case about marriage named 'Loving v. Virginia', as the irony only compounded by the slogan here -- "Virginia is for lovers".
