There have been a couple of things in the news this week that I just can’t understand.
1. The US Supreme Court’s ruling on corporate campaign spending just kind of blows my mind. I mean, really?
2. The California Proposition 8 Supreme Court hearing is going on – that’s the one to review the legality of the ban on gay marriages in California. I’ve been following this because I believe it’s an important civil rights issue. During the trial the following happened:
During an afternoon of scathing inquiry from prominent plaintiffs’ attorney David Boies, William Tam, a controversial figure in the Proposition 8 movement, was confronted repeatedly on views depicted as hostile to the rights of gays and lesbians. Tam testified he likened same-sex marriage to pedophilia, polygamy and legalizing sex with children, and that California would fall into the “hands of Satan” if same-sex couples could wed.
3. Everything coming out of Haiti.
4. The weather reports out here in California. I have seen hail here, people! And I had plans for this weekend and next week that didn’t involve torrential rains!
But to end on a funny note, here’s Doctor Laura and Canadians as house slaves, thanks to some witty Facebook theatre lady friends of mine.
