Version 2.043

What a day! The Supreme Court of the United States affirms that Civil Rights laws also protect LGBTQ workers from discrimination. Neil Gorsuch, the first Trump appointee to the Supreme Court, voted with the majority. If you'd ask me, I would have said that it would've been more probable for Kavanaugh to vote with the majority, but, alas, I was wrong indeed as Kavanaugh voted against it.

The cherry on the cake is that SCOTUS has also turned away 10 appeals that aimed at widening gun rights protections. It is quite remarkable such a turn, since the court tends to move slowly and cautiously, but when they see the writing on the wall, they do keep up with the times.

Speaking of SCOTUS, when I was in DC in February, I stopped by the National Portrait Gallery and there was a portrait of the four female Justices: Sandra Day O'Connor (she's retired), Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Elena Kagan, and Sonia Sotomayor. Around that time, someone sent me a very funny Portuguese social media post that said the SCOTUS Justices are known as the Supremes. Nope, they are called Justices. The Supremes are that band whose lead singer was Diana Ross. And, yes, the National Portrait Gallery also had a portrait of the Supremes: a poster of one of their concerts.
