All of the news


A couple of pieces of good news today.

New Hampshire Governor Signs Bill Allowing Same-Sex Marriage

New Hampshire's governor, John Lynch, has signed legislation
that makes the state the sixth to allow same-sex marriage.
The law will take effect in January. New Hampshire joins
Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maine, Vermont and Iowa in
recognizing same-sex marriages.

And:


WICHITA, Kan. — A man with ties to anti-government groups was charged Tuesday with first-degree murder in the shooting death of abortion provider George Tiller at a church.

It is a good thing that we now have six states that allow same-sex marriage. Soon it will be most states. Dick Cheney's daughter is openly a lesbian and Cheney gave a speech over the weekend with his daughter. At the end of the speech one commentator said that Cheney was more of an advocate for same sex marriage than President Obama.

Last but not least Newt Gingrich and Rush Limbaugh have now backed off of their accusations that Judge Sotomayer is a racist. They both said that they spoke too strongly and too soon to make that judgement. Of course the fact that most of the leading Republicans support her makes them have a huge amount of egg on their face.

In the case of Dr. Tiller violence is never the answer. Good solid debate is a good response. Lately the numbers for and against abortion have stayed the same so no one is changing their mind about anything.

So that was the day that was.
