something beautiful happened in the courthouse

The above graphic, clearly the product of many hours' work in the CNN graphic design offices, ran last night with a story on CNN.com about hints toward Harriet Miers' views on gay rights. The story told me that in the '80s she said she supported "civil rights for gays" but not a repeal of the Texas sodomy laws. The graphic told me that, if Miers is installed, homosexuality will rain down on the Supreme Court like manna from heaven.
