One Last Thing, Then Bed

Oh, it looks like (looks!) Prop. 8 in California, which would ban gay marriage in the state by Constitutional Amendment, is going to fail. Hooray!

Update: Nope, I was wrong (and I suppose, so was the story I had read online late last night). Prop 8 failed, but Props 1 & 2 passed. Small consolation, but there it is.

Not sure where you're getting your information, but I hope you're right.

For most of the night, 55% were voting "yes" to ban gay marriage. The margin has now narrowed some to 53% voting "yes," with 34% of votes reported.

We'll see what happens overnight.

Oh, yikes, I'm pretty sure I was looking at a story on Unfortunately, in their post on ballot measures it looks like it's still too close to call but leaning to the "Yes" column. Damn. Hopefully there's a big bag of "No" votes lying in a corner somewhere.

Indeed, it seems Prop 8 passed. Damn, that blows. Of minor consolation is the fact that both Props 1 & 2 (high speed rail connecting San Fran to LA and banning cruel treatment of farm animals, respectively) both passed. It's small consolation, to be sure, but there it is.

Two steps forward, one step waaaay back. Ugh...
