Here Comes da judge!

A friend of my mom's appeared before the Supreme Court of the US today. I think this is very cool. It seems very important. The Supreme Court is the highest court in the US. They are located in Washington, DC. There are 9 judges called "Justices" on the Supreme Court.

I don't totally understand about the case, but my mom's friend's brother has a disability, and his mom takes care of him at home. She gets money from the government to take care of him. The governor of Illinois wants her to join the union to take care of him.

Anyhow, my mom is very irritated by this and has been blabbing about it all afternoon. But then she joked that maybe moms should unionize and get better working conditions. My mom says she's sick of cooking dinner every night!
