Like many personal blogs of its era, this blog is moribund, a casualty of what we might call "the Facebook effect." However, as of late 2015, two things are clear: (1) The Indie Web is a thing, and (2) the re-decentralization of the web is a thing. So who knows? 2016 2017 2018 (!) could be the year this blog rises from its own ashes. Stay tuned!

Our eejit governor wants it to stop immediately, but the gay marriage train has been rolling for about a week now, right across the bay from me, in the city where I work and sometimes play. Two people I know have married their longtime partners thanks to Mayor Gavin Newsom. These are beautiful, loving people I’m talking about — people who treat others one hell of a lot better than plenty of straight people I’ve known. People who would probably make much better parents than plenty of parents I’ve known.

I mean, just look at these loving people. Counterarguments hold no water: “Equality” means marriage cannot be a reward for having been born heterosexual.

[Besides, the king of Cambodia thinks it’s a great idea!]

Ignatz Ratsywatski had this to say (02/23/2004 08:14:16):
I, for one, would also like to see that guy be able to marry the tree that he has chosen for his life partner.

Your thoughts?
