What Mattered This Week?

The Supremes held off on the headline cases this week, but decided a bunch of others. Those are important, too!

    1. Yes, thanks for mentioning this one. I'm not yet prepared to say that judicial nominations are going well, but every bit helps.

  3. The rocky road in the talks with the Taliban could end up mattering if those go off the rails.
