Well, that was one hell of a week. Marriage is marriage, at least in the eyes of the government. Flags come down, flags go up. And Taylor Swift saves music as we know it. Or something. If you didn’t expect to come out of last week an expert in recording industry contracts or constitutional law, don’t worry. You’re not. (And certainly neither am I.) But that doesn’t mean there’s not a lot to be excited about.
And I can’t help but wonder (again) how this past week in the news might have been different 10 or 15 years ago. Could it have even happened in a world without Twitter and Google and Facebook? Or would change just have happened much more slowly? Would we care about the Running of the Interns?
