  1. Good news indeed!

    This I didn’t know:

    “The federal challenge was filed on behalf of a gay couple in Southern California and a lesbian couple in Berkeley. They are being represented by former Solicitor General Ted Olson, a conservative, and noted litigator David Boies, who squared off against Olson in Bush vs. Gore.”

    A con and a lib, working together for human rights – who’d a thunk it?
