Wow!!

Spain has joined the ranks of nations that allow gay marriages!

This is such happy news. Unfortunately, it makes me think about the U.S. and the ignorance and bigotry that still allows states to pass laws banning gay marriage. I believe that there's certain powers that should be granted to the states, but I also believe there are basic rights that should be extended to all people including the right to not be discriminated against because of your sexual orientation.

I agree with you 100 percent. But I don't hold out any hope of gay marriage being legalized in the US any time soon. I used to think maybe when the baby boomers pass from political power we'd have a chance, but that red state stuff cuts across generational lines.

I think it'll be addressed once class war breaks out.

We're on a mini-vaca in an area where they're experiencing forest fires (thanks asshole arsonist). It's an area that makes Clift...
