Good morning! It is Friday which, is amazing. I think real-time blogging about a live blog makes me some sort of weird super fan. However, it did make me sublimely happy yesterday so I am totally doing it again today as promised. Chances are I will be silent during most of the 9:00 AM hour as I have “work” things to do. So here is what you need to know.
You can find SCOTUSBlog if you click here!
The link to all things Obergefell v. Hodges (SSM Case) is right here!
You can see what cases are left, which Justices have issued opinions and other stats if you click here!
You can check out that Hillary Clinton same-sex marriage campaign video that is making everyone cry below!
[9:03 AM EST] Amy How is live blogging for ScotusBlog! It’s time to get on people!
Oh yea, the link to the SCOTUSBlog FAQs….so important.
P.S. If you haven’t seen A Very Long Engagement, do it! It is how Lisa and I fell in love with the story of Edie and Thea. I am pretty sure it is still available on Netflix.
[9:43 AM EST] The count is 32K on SCOTUSBlog!
Not so fun fact: I’m labeling things right now. Feel the excitement.
