And then that happened.

In 2008ish, I wrote a paper for an admin law seminar that proposed that when applied through the tax code the 3rd section of DOMA was unconstitutional because it violated the 5th amendment.  I truly believed I was right, but I mostly wanted to see what would happen if I turned in a paper to a republican State Supreme Court justice that had a footnote referencing "lesbian bed death" (watch the L word, it's a thing).
Today my paper, loosely, became a US Supreme Court opinion.  Guess law school wasn't a complete waste...
