Irony of the week: If King v. Burwell is announced Thursday...

So, the Supreme Court did not announce their decision re. King v. Burwell this morning...but they have added an extra, non-Monday date for decision announcements...namely, this Thursday, June 18th at 10:00am.

There are 17 decisions left to announce this session, so they could add even more dates, but assuming they don't, this means that the possible decision dates are now reduced to this Thursday, next Monday the 22nd or the following Monday the 29th.

Here's the kicker: If they do make the announcement 3 days from now, I may not be able to post anything about it until several hours later.

For one thing, I'll be pretty exhausted that morning from catching the Red Eye back from Atlanta, Georgia, where I'm addressing the Society of Actuaries on Wednesday the 17th.

More to the point, however: My own son, ironically, has a can't-reschedule hospital appointment Thursday 10:00am. Nothing too serious, but I probably won't be able to post/respond to anything until the early afternoon.

Anyway, my guess is that they'll hold off until the 29th after all, but I figured I should put this out there just in case.
