The United States Supreme Court is taking on the subject…..taking on the argument started by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and if the polling trends are even close to being accurate, the argument should soon be settled…maybe sometime this summer.

The high court on Friday sent Dirk Greineder’s case back to the Supreme Judicial Court for further consideration.
I’ve decided I’ve been watching too much TV recently. I kinda got hooked on Mad Men in the past year (playing catch-up) but I started to watch the Premier two-hour show last night, launching the new season and fell asleep 90-minutes in.
