The Supreme Court last week was amazing. I mean:

Donald Glover My Emotion

SCOTUSblog’s coverage of Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt is fantastic if you’re interested in a detailed look at the case.

If you’re not as familiar as me and my fellow Texans with this case, you may remember the Wendy Davis filibuster and protest at the State Capitol.

And speaking of SCOTUS, The Supreme Court’s ‘Wise Latina’ Notches Her First Key Victory on ThinkProgress is a great read. It works through the surprising Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin (affirmative action) outcome, and how Justice Sonia Sotomayor is our day’s Justice Thurgood Marshall.

Of Marshall, Justice O’Connor once said “he continuously forced his colleagues on the Supreme Court to ‘respond not only to the persuasiveness of legal argument but also to the power of moral truth.'” So if Justice Sotomayor truly is our Justice Marshall (and she appears to be), we’re lucky to have her. (Thanks, Obama!)

In less awesome news, we said goodbye to The Toast this week. But they went out with an inspiring note from Hillary Clinton, so that was a nice bonus for the end.
