Aftermath

Well that was a mixed bag to say the least. Main proved to be just like California in the percentage of people willing to vote for hate and bigotry. Nice to see the left and right coast agreeing on some thing for once. Meanwhile by the same 53% to 47% Referendum 71 was approved in Washington upholding the Domestic Partnership laws. There may be a lesson in there somewhere for us, do away with marriage and replace it with domestic partnerships.

There is also a lesson in Kalamazoo upholding by a 60%+ margin a fully gender inclusive local anti-discrimination ordinance. That lesson is pass a fully inclusive Federal ENDA now, the time is right.
