Oh sure, you call them "Supreme" now...

+JMJ+

On an interesting historical note, today is the anniversary of the Supreme Court's Plessy v. Ferguson decision, where the beloved and wise men (no female justices back then) who sat on the highest court in the land decided that 1) "separate but equal" was completely constitutional, and 2) in the Old South, black people would actually be treated equally. (sometimes, you really have to wonder...no,no you don't. I take that back. Wondering means that you don't quite know the answer, although the logic used on that one does give me pause.)

I would suggest that on this day you all add in your intentions a prayer for equal rights and social justice, including the poor, marginalized, and of course, those who are not yet born.
