The first thing I am really happy about is the judge in California ruling that Prop 8 is unconstitutional. I think that freedom and equality are THE two attributes that are the foundation of this country. Without them, I feel, this isn't the United States of America. I am so stoked that, if the ruling holds up, that everyone will have the freedom to have a marriage that is equal to mine in every way.
If the above paragraph offends you, I will offer the courteous advice to stop reading now. I think Jesus would have allowed all people to have a marriage, regardless.
I was also really excited at the plugging of the oil well in the Gulf of Mexico. It is about time, I hope that the coastlines will recover. I was also happy to see Kagan get confirmed, I like that she isn't a judge. I think sometimes you have to have academics to tackle problems with a different perspective and with a different attitude. She will not have the taint of prior cases heard to cloud her judgement.
Work is good, life is okay, things are alright. I look forward to more good news coming up. Shameless plug time: Friend my company's facebook page, look for CarBuyCo. Thanks!
