Let the Sun Shine In!

It’s a hot day in Orange County. The sun is blazing and so are the right wing blogs. It was to be expected and they delivered right on queue. They’re doing their usual sniveling about being forced by the Government to treat their fellow United States Citizens, friends, neighbors and family members with the same kind of respect and civil rights as everyone else.

I think it really irritates them that the decision came from a conservative court. Ha! I love it. In a landmark decision, the state Supreme Court essentially ruled that Gay people can get married in California. Jumpin’ Jehovah with a bullwhip and rainbow flag – it’s about Goddamn time.

When my wife heard the news yesterday her jaw hit the floor. When she picked it back up there was a big smile on her face. I declared that yesterday was a better day than the day before and tomorrow (that’s today, for those of you keeping track) would be better still. There’s nothing like a little hope and faith in humanity to really improve your mood. Let the sun shine in indeed!

    I’m VERY excited by this decision. Going to Long Beach Pride this sunday. This should be a celebration for the books!

    LB pride is in May? Wow they are jumping the gun. Does OC do anything special for Pride?

    I’ve no idea….I s’pose if it happens it’s in Laguna, but I’ve never heard of anything.

    Unfortunately I think OC is still to conservative for a pride parade.

    That’s nonsense! If Utah has a pride parade then OC must have someone somewhere.

    Maybe I need to organize one…
