Pray, chant, do whatever you can...
UPDATE: Today at 10:00 am Pacific Daylight Time, the California Supreme Court delivered their verdict to uphold Proposition 8. The court has decided to honor and uphold the 13,000 marriages performed pre-Prop. 8.
I am disgusted and sickened that any government would or could uphold legalized bigotry and oppression in this day and age.
I weep for the state I called home for eleven years. And I feel for the friends and family I have living there.
But until I can set foot in California and be seen as an equal under the law, California has seen the last dollar, its last cent from me - and the last time I will ever set foot in the Golden State.
Perhaps after years in the sun - of being a beacon and a shining example of progressive thinking and tolerance, the meanness and tackiness and petty intolerances of the plastic, inelastic stucco-for-brains lower half of the state are creeping like an infection northward - to destroy the last remaining vestiges of free thinkers.
I read a horror story once where a band of vampires sealed off and took over Los Angeles. They were poised on the brink of ultimate success when "the big one" hits - a massive earthquake that destroys the city and washes it clean under tidal waves of salt water.
If only. I wonder what the tsunami historical record for Orange and San Diego Counties looks like.
