Good day for getting hitched. So say the Supremes. The Defense of Marriage Act dumped. Mostly. 5-4. A different mix of Justices say Prop 8 in California is also ditched. Mostly. 5-4. Stars of the day. Ted Olson, David Boies & Co. Congrats! Champion of equal rights for every American. Anthony Kennedy.
In Massachusetts, Pats have untethered the reins from Hernandez. Arrested in North Attleboro. Ed Markey, a Democrat, goes to the Senate to take Kerry’s post. In Northampton, it’s a happy gay day. And, we get to pay more property taxes.
