Supreme Court gets it wrong again

It seems like every year, I have to write a story about how the U.S. Supreme Court is continuing to make campaign finances worse and worse. In 2010, it was the court's Citizens United decision. In 2012, the court's refusal to even reconsider the Citizens United case. In 2013, I wrote about the arguments made in McCutcheon vs. Federal Election Commission (FEC).

Accounts differ as to exactly which church White attended (most likely First Presbyterian) or whether or not the stray managed to get inside the church. The one fact that has held up during the 100 years is that the dog was waiting outside for him and followed him home.
