FLAGS ARE BEING FLOWN
On the eve of the Supreme Court listening to arguments on Prop 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act, a CNN poll said 53% of Americans support same-sex marriage and 57% say they have a family member or close friend who is gay. I guess the tide is turning.
My partner and I went to San Francisco during the Winter of Love 2004 to get married. It was moving to see the lines of people waiting to get married. In the rain. In the dark. In the cold. Sleeping in their cars. Strangers from all over the world sending flowers to couples standing in line. People cheering when each couple came out of City Hall.
It will be an interesting couple of days hearing the arguments. Then a anxious couple of months waiting for the judgments.
Have to have a root canal tomorrow. Ugh! Better a root canal than a broken tooth!
