      I especially enjoyed p. 38 with references to proposals in restaurants, on bended knee, and splashed across Jumbotrons (hey! Do you think Sony paid for that product placement?)


      They knew they were writing something that would be read by lay people, and I've rarely read a more accessible decision. At the same time, it's clear they knew they were writing for the ages, something that scholars would refer to decades and perhaps centuries from now.

      It's a complete and utter smackdown of bigotry and all the flimsy excuses offered by its supporters.

      In other words, a lovely example of Justice.
