What an exciting time!

California, while recognizing all same sex marriages made before Prop 8 reared its big, dumb head, reinforces the ban. Sigh.

I can’t wait for this issue to be over and placed in the history books alongside Women’s Suffrage and the Civil Rights Movement on the list of important changes to national embarrassments. Then I can tell the younger generation, “I was there. I saw it. Can you believe people actually had to debate the issue? I mean, I know it seems ridiculous to you kids that there ever was discussion about whether or not people could marry, sure, but I was there. It really happened.”
