People Are Already Camping Out for Tuesday’s Supreme Court Gay Marriage Hearing

Paul Mazzuca rests in front of the Supreme Court in Washington on March 22, 2013 as people begin lining up for the court's upcoming coming hearings on gay marriage. The justices will hear arguments Tuesday on California's Proposition 8 ban on same-sex marriage and on Wednesday on the federal Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage as between one man and one woman.

A line started to form outside the Supreme Court today, five days before oral arguments on two gay marriage cases are set to begin on Tuesday. The temperature at night is going to be in the 30s until then, and Monday’s forecast calls for rain and snow showers, so this seems kind of nuts. But, you know, in an inspiring way. It’s not like they’re camping out for a new Target like some weird Canadian.
