Some Things Are Good

The Wrong Shall Fail, The Right Prevail
Others have said it better than I could - in particular, Judge Vaughn R. Walker. I direct you here, for his thorough, and scathing, smackdown review of and ruling on Prop 8 proponents' arguments. (After reading this, I'd be surprised if anyone on the Prop 8 legal team didn't go into court knowing that their arguments were as logically air-tight and waterproof as a screen door on a submarine.) Apparently, some other constitutional scholars think the ruling has a healthy chance of survival in higher court. That's even better.

I have all the intellectual capacity of runny cottage cheese tonight, but my heart is happy. Something that - all rationalizations ripped mercilessly aside - denied civil rights to human beings, has had a great and, hopefully, mortal blow struck against it.
