There's a lot of back and forth about what today's Supreme Court ruling on affirmative action at U of M means; who won and who lost. I say complete or not, affirmative action supporters should declare victory . I'm not happy with the undergrad ruling. How is it more fair to give points to legacies than it is to give points to minorities? But at the end of the day affirmative action is still constitutional, and frankly we're hanging onto it with out fingernails.

This was a very stressful case and I'm relieved it's over, which isn't to say that I won't be keeping an eye on the issue.
