A Beautiful Day

Though I haven't posted here in, oh, 19 months or so, recent events I think warrant some kind of update.

So here goes.

HOLY SHIT! Obama won!

What a great day. We had a blast last night, celebrating with 1000s of folks at The Stranger's election night party, and in the streets of Seattle afterwards.

In much sadder news, California's Prop 8 appears headed for approval. It's a terrible tragedy that some seem so determined to replace discrimination against one group with discrimination against another group. A black man is president, but gay people can't freely marry. Hopefully one day we'll run out of people to discriminate against.

So it's not all good news, but it's progress. We have a long way to go.
