“I had a dream in which I was reading The New York Times and mused aloud how strange it was to see ‘President Hanks’ in print because I still couldn’t believe Tom Hanks was president — I didn’t remember voting for him, after all — and then Karen in the dream told me, ‘That’s because this is a dream.’ She always keeps me grounded.”

“Insofar as there was confusion about what [the Supreme Court’s decision in U.S. v. Windsor] meant at the time it was decided, the lower courts across the country have now effectively settled it. A survey of publicly available opinions shows that in the eight months since Windsor, 18 court decisions have addressed an issue of equality based on sexual orientation. And in those 18 cases, equality has won every single time. In other words, not a single court has agreed with Chief Justice Roberts that Windsor is merely about state versus federal power. Instead, each has used Windsor exactly as Justice Scalia ‘warned’—as a powerful precedent for equality.”
