WSJ WEEKEND INTERVIEW With Jennifer Gratz: The Woman Who Fought Racial Preference – WSJ

Jennifer Gratz's legal battle had dragged on for 5½ years when it ended in 2003 with a 6-3 U.S. Supreme Court ruling in her favor. She tells me she felt as if she'd "been kicked in the gut." If that seems an unusual reaction to a victory, it's because the circumstances made it Pyrrhic. Ms. Gratz, then 25, had sued to challenge the University of Michigan's racially ... Go To Article

STEVEN GREENHUT:: Let’s Divorce Marriage from the Government – Reason

As a kid, I remember watching a rerun of the 1952 I Love Lucy Show episode in which Lucy finds her marriage license while cleaning out a closet. She discovers, to her horror, a typo that refers to husband Ricky’s last name as Bacardi rather than Ricardo, which causes her to question the legality of her marriage. The ensuing hijinks are the makings of sitcom legend. ... Go To Article

ANDREW C. McCARTHY:: Shelby and the Left’s False Narrative | NRO

By  Andrew C. McCarthy -- For anyone other than a “social justice” demagogue, the Supreme Court’s Shelby decision, striking down Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act (VRA), is cause for celebration. In real life, this is a success story: A society that overcomes ingrained, systematic racial discrimination — and does it during a 40-year span while, in parts of ... Go To Article

JOHN PODHORETZ:: Grieving for Gandolfini – NYPOST

By JOHN PODHORETZ -- Nothing is quite so unsettling as an untimely death. It throws us off, makes us unsure of where we stand, suggests a disordered malignity in the universe. That helps explain the visceral emotional reaction over the past week to the death of James Gandolfini, which was marked by a funeral attended by thousands at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine ...
