Major issues expected to be decided by the Supreme Court on Thursday:

-Sodomy: whether states can punish gay couples for engaging in sexual acts that are legal for heterosexual couples, a follow-up to a ruling 17 years ago that upheld a sodomy ban. Lawrence v. Texas, 02-102.

-Free speech: a review of the scope of corporate free-speech protection in a case that involves sneaker maker Nike and allegations it lied about working conditions in overseas factories. Nike v. Kasky, 02-575.

In a sigh of relief the S.Ct upheld Affirmative Action today!--Thank you Sandra Day who wrote for the 5-4 majority as she stated the obvious: "In order to cultivate a set of leaders with legitimacy in the eyes of the citizenry, it is necessary that the path to leadership be visibly open to talented and qualified individuals of every race and ethnicity"

My fingers are crossed for Thursday! Oh please see to the rights of homosexuals and the need for truthfulness in corporate advertising! These are major community building decsions that we need for the strength, integrity and health of our societyat large!
