Never thought I would see the day...

Amazing times we live in. A court of mostly-Republican nominees has just upheld the right of gays to marry. I knew that someday we would arrive there, but I didn't expect to see it so soon! Gives me hope of liberty and justice for all, though my cynical side keeps whispering "And what does the government hope to gain by this?"

It's like the Democratic presidential nominee was determined a while back to be either a black or a woman. I didn't expect to see that one so soon, either. Maybe in my lifetime, but...

It helps balance out a little of my cynicism over things like kids getting expelled from school for carrying aspirin.
