The Supreme Court actually had a good week

Yeah, I know. I'm surprised too.

First, the Court upheld the Affordable Care Act yet again (commonly known as "Obamacare"). Justice Roberts states:

Then there's the gay marriage decision:

“It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves. Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization’s oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right.” –Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, writing for the majority

So yeah, I'd say that was a pretty good week there.
