And so it goes ...

Busy week...between a number of personal commitments and getting ready for and making the trek to Delaware.  A significant bit of events that has been brought to light this week regarding gay/same sex marriage that are very bright spots from what I can see.

First, public opinion:

A Washington Post poll shows that public support for gay marriage has risen significantly in the last few years.  That means that political opinion will follow because of course, they want to be re-elected.  More information available here.
And the political opinion followed:
Although in 2000 she didn't agree, Hillary got on or stayed on the bandwagon by announcing her support in a video.  Video

And Republican Senator Portman came out supporting gay marriage also.  Full story here.

Finally, the Supreme Court will hear the cases involving same sex marriage next week.  And, I know at least some of our blogger friends will be in attendance at the demonstration in Washington, DC.

It's all good, I think.

I have a different past than many of you, and, although I have never opposed gay marriage, I was not an avid supporter.   One of the best arguments was made by blogger 'NO HETERO' on his blog Nohetero blog.  Check him out.


  1. I'll be there on the steps of the Supreme Court on Tuesday and Wednesday next week, wearing red, making a showing for our civil rights.

  2. Great encapsulation of the current state of our evolving nation. I just think it's time... the same way Mississippi finally got around to ratifying the 13th amendment. The same way our next president will be... fingers crossed. :) - Uptonking from Wonderland Burlesque
