Rock on Iowa. Of course, fans of Robert Preston as saying, Well, it's about damned time!

Way to show the rest of the country! Now, California - get it together!

Granted, it's still 2010, but I'm surprised how far down the list California is.

It's an interesting article. I am still not convinced that the way the state's constitution was modified was exactly legal and I'm sure that most people didn't know that what they were voting on would, in fact, modify the constitution. Or, if they did, if it was already too late - because the fear factor had been ramped so high. My mom spouted off all manner of hysterical fiction about why she voted for the ban and, when I pointed out that Prop 8 would amend the state constitution, she said "Who cares?" But it felt like a knee jerk reaction - like she was simply too far beyond rational analysis at that point.
