      It's pretty funny—for both sides of the ideological spectrum—that the concrete damage issue in this case is all about an extremely rich woman being forced to pay $350K+ in estate taxes.

      It takes some serious attention to the underlying details (i.e., the blatant violation of equal protection) to understand why liberals ought to be troubled by that.

      Given the proclivities of conservative types—most importantly King Anthony—it's pretty smart plaintiff selection on the part of the pro-gay side, though.
