Happy Wednesday.

Today is the final decision day for the Supreme Court's term. There will be decisions in the DOMA and Prop 8 cases, so check back for posts on that shortly after 10AM. Oh, a bit of Supreme Court trivia: today is the tenth anniversary of the Lawrence v. Texas decision.

Environmentalists supporting President Obama's war on coal have issued talking points, which include suggestions to avoid discussion of jobs or the rising price of electricity, naturally.

You may have heard about the drama in Texas last night, as GOP legislators tried in a special session to pass a law restricting most abortions after 20 weeks. The Democratic filibuster wasn't technically successful, but it did manage to run out the clock. Gov. Perry has suggested that he might call another special session.

Also in Texas, the state AG says the Voter ID law passed last year and challenged by DOJ under section 5 of the VRA will go into immediate effect since Texas is no longer a covered jurisdiction.

In case anybody cares, the AP wire is saying that Marc Rich, the trader pardoned by President Clinton, has died in Switzerland.

The East Coast got hit by a tsunami on June 13 and no one noticed.

I'm confused at the focus on Jay-Z and "cool" in this piece about making Obamacare hip for young people.

And in news we already knew, no, the IRS did not target progressive groups like they targeted conservative ones.
