Here's the Baltimore Sun's take. And that $2.9 million -- that's just compensatory damages and does not include punitive.
Not much reaction from Westboro yet, but you've got to believe they're going to appeal. In the meantime, I'm guessing the church won't be doing much funeral picketing. (Though I could be -- and often am -- wrong.)
OH MY GOD -- Westboro has its own blog. It's basically set up so church leaders can respond to emails from the public. No response from the church yet, but I'll keep checking.
UPDATED: Punitive damages are $8 million.
