The Writ of Certiorari in 43 Seconds!

The NYTimes got it right when it said that the Supreme Court let stand the circuit court decisions on gay marriage, but most news sources generally start by saying something like "The Supreme Court decided..." What this means is that if you are gong to discuss the refusal to listen to the cases then, of course, you'll need to discuss a writ of certiorari and how cases are accepted by the court.  The video above not only explains it, but uses words to help in the explanation.  The best explanation of why the Supreme Court might have denied cert comes from Scotus Blog.
