So Happy – Historical Decision

I took down the Whistleblower post and it will appear in a week or so. I want to give space and recognition to the historical decision just handed down by the Supreme Court.

Not sure what else to say. A great and long-overdue moment for all our LGBTQ community.

  1. Yes, I’m overjoyed, and I’m willing to wait to kvetch about yesterday’s decision later. For now, let’s celebrate! Also, I love the courthouse equality icon you’re using. Is it okay to borrow?

  2. Don’t forget that not did the US Supremes rule DOMA unconstitutional, but they also declined to hear the Prop 8 case from California. This means that the appellate decision overturning Prop 8 is now the law of California. Congratulations California!!
