The best thing I have read in quite some time. 


"SAN FRANCISCO - The California Supreme Court has overturned a voter-approved ban on gay marriage, paving the way for the state to become the second in the United States where gay and lesbian residents can marry.

The justices released the 4-3 decision Thursday, saying that domestic partnerships are not a good enough substitute for marriage in an opinion written by Chief Justice Ron George.

Outside the courthouse, gay marriage supporters cried and cheered as news spread of the decision."

Dorian advises caution:

"Yes, but...

While there are some good things here, including a notation that calling them anything other than marriage is unacceptable, which should avoid the cluster-fuck that happened in New Jersey, and the ruling does go into effect immediately, Arnie has been a bit of a flip-flopper on the issue, and there is an upcoming ballot initiative to amend the state constitution to ban gay marriage, civil unions and partner benefits. And the LAST anti-gay marriage measure that was on the state ballot passed by a landslide."
