Alci, please, please, if you do nothing else in your life, get yourself on a talk show. I would love to listen to (or watch!) Alcibiades' America or whatever you'd call it.
The Olson/Boies suit is interesting. I don't know if you saw the hubbub when it came out. Gay rights organizations are very upset that they chose to press this claim in the federal courts, under the federal constitution when they will definitely lose in the Supreme Court. I don't know if mainstream civil rights organizations have long been too risk averse (since Jack Greenberg's tenure at the Legal Defense Fund, at least) -- maybe it's not that big a deal to lose big on occasion? In any case, I remain a bit suspicious of their motives and lack of connection to the communities they represent. I also don't understand why they included some claims but not others, but obviously the suit isn't well-developed yet (it's just at the complaint stage), and I surely can't question Olson's or Boies' legal know-how.
