This week, the Supreme Court is likely to decide which cases they will hear regarding same-sex marriage and the rights of gay and lesbian couples.
Some of the possible cases include the constitutionality of California’s Proposition 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). This term we really have the opportunity to see the true colors of the Supreme Court. Will the Supreme Court let the injustice and subjugation of gays and lesbians continue? My hope is that they will finally end the rampant discrimination against same-sex couples by DOMA.

With all of the attention surrounding the events on campus following President Obama’s re-election, I’m going to offer an odd suggestion: go see “Cloud Atlas” and “Skyfall.”
What do these films have to do with those events? What in the name of MI6 could they possibly have to do with each other? And how can they help us understand rapidly accelerating technological and social change? I’m going to try to link all these up without spoilering, so bear with me.
