A look back at today's top stories
As we enter the final countdown to the Supreme Court arguments in the Prop 8 and DOMA cases, Ari Waldman previews the issue of "standing" in the Prop 8 case. SCOTUSBlog founder Tom Goldstein also gives everyone a heads-up about what to look out for next week.
Also heterosexual and gay parents alike would be proud of the poise and precociousness of 12-year-old Matthew Lannon who spoke out on behalf of his two moms at last night's marriage equality hearing in Rhode Island.
A pro wrestler who goes by "Bully Ray" apologized yesterday after he was recently caught on video throwing gay slurs at a fan. It turns out that the deposed anti-gay Scottish Cardinal who stepped down after being accused of getting it on with other priests was having a long term affair with one of his accusers. And I don't know if this qualifies as "wingnuttery" but I think we can all agree that Google founder Sergey Brin's belief that smartphones are effeminate seems a little wacky.
VIDEOS OF THE DAY
