The message of the day: watch out, ye of narrow mind. The best "buck up little camper" speech yet: Margaret Cho's blog (Scroll to the entry for 11/3 "Dont Despair, Act") Best Bitch-slap: Pete Coors and his "no to gay marriage" campaign in Colorado was officially handed the message to stick making swill. Most exciting dude: Barack Obama...thank God there are people like him in public service. The awesomest (you love it scott and brit) reminder of where we are: Quote sent to me by my friend Hal, The arc of history is long, but it bends toward justice. Dr. Martin Luther King I'm strangely optomistic today. Oh yeah, and for those of you who just want to know about a little renovation,our house has a kitchen that's fast filling up with water as the early fall rains, and yes folks hail, continue to batter our roof. The stucco is progressing and looking great but i'm anxious to get it up so things can be made watertight.

Stick to the Edges (but watch out for Oregon)

Turns out it's a good thing I left the South and Beth left the middle of the country. Narrow-mindedness reigns supreme there. Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Michigan, N. Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Utah and Mississippi all voted to support discrimination against gay marriage. You'd think at least the Southern states would say to themselves "hmmm, we looked like jackasses for making interracial marriage illegal, maybe we should be forward thinking..." but no. And 4 more years of bush. sigh. It's a dark day.
