Today was a big day in Washington, D.C. Throngs of reporters, tourists and passers-by gathered outside of the Supreme Court this morning to hear the Court's decision on the health care reform law. Regardless of which side of the debate they were on, there is one thing the crowd could agree on: it's hot outside!
