Really wish I’d had time last week to delve into the recent SCOTUS stuff, but I was out of town showing off the kid to his grandparents and other fam and had absolutely no bandwidth for writing. Everyone else has said what I would’ve anyway (gist: yay on DOMA and Prop 8, boo on the VRA.)
So instead of a long-winded bloviation on the topic, I’ll just drop in this link, to a video by one of my favorite actors, taken on his way to get married to his long-time partner. That’s pretty much what it’s all about right there. So damned glad that by the time my kid’s old enough to understand this stuff, he’s going to be asking why the hell we took so long to do something so obvious.
Of course, I’ll also have to explain why some people still think it’s OK to try to prevent their fellow citizens from voting. Meh.
