– Sonia Sotomayor strolling down Main Street in Annapolis Wednesday afternoon with a posse of about a half-dozen folks, probably a mix of law clerks and security. Hey, it had been a busy couple of days at work, what with DOMA and Voting Rights Act rulings and all — we’d bail out early too, if we could.  Casually dressed: Khakis, orange scoop-neck tee. Stopped in a couple of stores, including Seasons Olive Oil & Vinegar Taproom; unclear if she bought or just browsed. Md. state Sen. Rich Madaleno spotted her while having milkshakes with his family to toast the DOMA ruling and chased her down to introduce himself as the only openly gay state senator in Maryland and give her a hug. “When [else] do I get a chance to run into a Supreme Court justice and say thank you and tell her what this means to my family?” the Montgomery County Democrat told our colleague John Wagner.
