Last Saturday I was watching my boyfriend Russell play softball when fellow softball widow Josh and I got into a conversation about the Supreme Court Justices. Other than a few well known names, neither of us knew every members of the Supreme Court. With that in mind I thought it might be helpful and interesting to learn a little bit more about the 9 men and women who hold the fate of gay marriage in their hands.
