Props for no Eight

Don’t Stop Believing.

Today I shout with Glee! No, not the TV show.

To celebrate the legal decision against Prop 8 yours truly designed the t-shirt shown here. (Note: At no time do I make any claim that this design is clever or good.)

It’s a serious matter when the legal system overturns a vote of the people and I feel a bit sobered by that reality. A lot of people feel like celebrating, me included, but even if the legal decision is justified, striking down a vote of the people is a monumental thing to do.

The initiative process is a wonderful thing in our Republic that gives the people a direct route to lawmaking, basically an “end around” of the people who normally make our laws. Even though it is a wonderful thing, however, that doesn’t mean the will of the people is always right and/or legal. I sincerely hope the decision made today was based on solid legal grounds.

No doubt this will turn out to be one more skirmish in the overall war, but it is an encouraging sign.

Love at first sight

Do you believe in love at first sight? This morning the universe brought me the video below. Now I believe.

Another Twitter Twix

I just find it funny when two tweets land randomly side-by-side and are funny and/or interesting to read one after the other. I thought this one was pretty good.
