Bag’s Take-Away:
 With the Boy Scouts doubling down on its gay ban this week, the photo the Daily News ran had the feeling of a backlash — especially with the AP photo credited to “Anonymous.” One thing the picture of Scout executive Bob Mazzuca is playing on is the meme of anti-gay advocates as repressed homosexuals.

 My favorite visual of the decision results so far. Both Fox and CNN initially reported the mandate has struck down. At least Megyn Kelly had the foresight to look a little dubious.

 Soon (probably Monday) we will go from two lonely guys waiting on the steps of SCOTUS to crowing and hand wringing. We know it will happen, we just don’t know who will be doing it.

This is one of those photos I would typically pass over: hands and a rosary, prayers for some political cause in front of a government institution. Nothing that new or original about that. 
But in this case, an out of focus figure that must be a guard stands blocking the entrance to the Supreme Court like a blurry and huge set of keys or a shape standing in opposition to the crucifix. What better accidental symbolism for a Supreme Court ruling on Arizona’s draconian immigration law?
