Unruly demonstrations against the law

There is a law on the books that makes illegal the kind of unruly demonstrations currently taking place at the residences of some SCOTUS justices. Following is that law (www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/1507): "18 U.S. Code § 1507 — Picketing or parading: Whoever, with the intent of interfering with, obstructing, or impeding the administration of justice, or with the intent of influencing any judge, juror, witness, or court officer, in the discharge of his duty, pickets or parades in or near a building housing a court of the United States, or in or near a building or residence occupied or used by such judge, juror, witness, or court officer, or with such intent uses any sound-truck or similar device or resorts to any other demonstration in or near any such building or residence, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both. Nothing in this section shall interfere with or prevent the exercise by any court of the United States of its power to punish for contempt.”

The Purpose of Book Bans Is to Make Queer Kids Scared

I joke about it now: “Until you’ve seen a priest calling you a pedophile at a city council meeting…”. But when someone first sent me the video I couldn’t watch more than a few seconds of it. I thought I’d be fine. I’ve dealt with homophobia before; I’ve been called the f-word just for standing a certain way, even while growing up in NYC. This was just a school board meeting on the other side of the country. I thought, What do I care what these people think of me? I thought, “this is just going to be the same hateful stuff.”

People Are Revealing Which Retired Disney Parade They Want Back. Do You Agree?

Parades are sacred to the AllEars team, and we would do some irrational things to bring some of them back. Unlike Main Street Electrical Parade — which has returned more times than we can count — many retired parades don’t get the opportunity to return to the parks. That’s why we recently discussed the parades we wish Disney would bring back, like SpectroMagic and Tapestry of Nations. And since we’ve already shared our opinion on the matter, we wanted to know what you thought!
