DOMA is going down!

February 24, 2012


I am a little disappointed that federal Judge Jeffrey White‘s ruling against DOMA has not received more attention (I just found about it today so I’m a bit behind). Perhaps it lacks the flair of the Ninth Court of Appeal’s ruling on Prop 8. The language was equally logical and supportive, but didn’t offer the […]

A vote cast in vain

February 20, 2012


I cast my absentee ballot for the primaries today. Well technically I filled in the blank and put it in the envelope, I’m not sure it counts as “cast” til it makes it back to Michigan.

February 6, 2012


Hey blog buddies. I haven’t found the inspiration/desire/time to write for a while. I had actually written part of a post the day after Christmas, but I was having fun with my family and I forgot about it. My Christmas break was quite interesting. I picked up my sister at her college and we drove […]
