Quote for today… “Some will rejoice in today’s decision, and some will despair at it; that is the nature of a controversy that matters so much to so many. But the Court has cheated both sides, robbing the winners of an honest victory, and the losers of the peace that comes from a fair defeat. We owed both of them better. I dissent.” – Antonin Gregory Scalia, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, in his dissenting opinion on the United States v. Windsor case. – United States Supreme Court Website
