    seem like the ideal case?

    The Court is loath to take away rights from citizens.

    Last week, Bob and Jerry from Provo got married. So they have the rights of marriage. This week, George and John form Salt Lake City can't get married and are denied the same rights.

    That's an equal protection problem.

    The court either takes away the rights already granted to (an currently enjoyed by)  the first couple.

    Or it gives them to the second.

    The conservatives on the Court are going to be reduced to relitigating Windsor.

    So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.
