A quiet anniversary
On this date in 1967, the US Supreme Court (not always as determinedly useless as they have been recently) struck down the State of Virginia's anti-"miscegenation" law, rendering such laws unconstitutional. The case was Loving v. Virginia. Wikipedia has a fairly good description here, and there's another article, with photos, here.
