It sounds to me that this case of Edie Windsor was the perfect case to bring down DOMA. After all who would rule against her after hearing her story. That it was a 5-4 decision instead of 9-0 shows just how radical this supreme court is.

The Supreme Court is polarized right down the middle, just like the rest of the country.

This was a victory for Human Rights, and in Edie's Case, a Federal Tax Refund of $363,000. Victory!

"Windsor sued the federal government after the Internal Revenue Service denied her refund request for the $363,000 in federal estate taxes she paid after her spouse, Thea Spyer, died in 2009."
===
So...she gets the refund + interest from 2009 to now...good for you Edie, good for you. The Feds owe you and every other same-sex couple more than just that for their careless disregard of your civil rights.

Yes. 
       I know many many  people who  migrated to California because  my home was viewed as a place  that was accepting and tolerant  of all people and  was decent. 
       Now  that we are decent again, and we can wash the stain that the religious right tried to slime us with,  away for good.

Another ridiculous Huffington Post front page headline posting:

"PHOTO: The Most Edie Windsor Found Out DOMA Had Been Struck Down"

Are you sure?? Are you sure she was the most Edie Windsor? You never know, she could have been almost Edie Windsor or even a tad Edie Windsor. Good grief.

"Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can't ride you unless your back is bent."

Martin Luther King, Jr.

All Americans - black, brown, white, gay, straight....ALL Americans should rejoice today. When one group is more free, we are all more free.
