A Good Day

Today, I hung out with my girlfriend for the first time since she left for boot camp. We rambled about politics and ate pancakes and had lots of fun.

And then, I come home to find these lovely blogroll items:

Connecticut Supreme Court extends marriage rights to gay couples

An amazing 10-year-old critiques what tween magazines teach girls her age

And finally, Gallup says we're winning by 10 points.

It's a good day. I love Fridays.

Here's my favorite quote from the Connecticut decision:

"if we have learned anything from the significant evolution in the prevailing societal views and official policies toward members of minority races and toward women over the past half-century, it is that even the most familiar and generally accepted of social practices and traditions often mask unfairness and inequality that frequently is not recognized or appreciated by those not directly harmed by those practices or traditions."
