This fine Sunday morning, I am readingĀ a New Mexico Appellate Court opinion: Elane Photography, LLC v. Willock.

It’s an interesting case, well-argued and sensibly-decided. But not so well proofread as it might have been:

In Hurley, the United States Supreme Court explained that requiring a parade to include openly gay, lesbian and bisexual decedents or Irish immigrants would essentially force the parade to disseminate their message.

I giggled a bit, reading this.

(Well, yes, the court almost certainly meant ‘descendents of’. But the notion of legally-mandated inclusion of dead people or Irish immigrants in a parade is…funny, if you have a sense of humor like mine.)
