Ahem... to quote an article on Yahoo News today..."In a major victory for gay rights, the Supreme Court on Wednesday struck down a provision of a federal law denying federal benefits to married gay couples and cleared the way for the resumption of same-sex marriage in California."

Thank you, Supreme Court. You screwed us over with denying us our right to remain silent as guaranteed by the Fifth Amendment, and you did it again by invalidating a key part of the Voting Rights Act. But... you did the right thing by granting equal marriage rights to everyone. And I totally appreciate that.

So... equal parts horror and joy, right?

And hey, Wendy Davis, YOU GO, GIRL!!! Thank you for donning those pink Nikes and standing up to the Good Ol' Boys for my rights! I am so damn tired of the Good Ol' Boys in Texas running things. Thank you for giving them a well deserved poke in the eye!

And now, you may return to your regularly scheduled lives...
