Bruce Bastian, the founder of the WordPerfect software program, has donated $1 million to fight the anti-gay marriage ballot initiative in California:
Out-of-state money floods to Prop. 8 [SF Gate]
On that same token, we hear the word processing software will also no longer support any documents that are justified to the far right.
This makes me happy :) I mis-read it at first, and thought you said that they had donated money to the anti-gay ballot, but am very happy that that's a mis-read.

Splendid. This has to put Ken Hutcherson in a real bind. What does he have left to use? Google docs? Maybe he's a mac user. Apple Pages in that case? He doesn't strike me as an open source guy, so I'm ruling (no pun intended) out OpenOffice.

It took me a second to get the whole right justification thing. Good yucks!
And good for him!

Zortnac: I'd say it's a safe bet to go ahead and rule out all things Apple. The company's vibe oozes liberal/progressive/gay-friendly.
Jen: Yea, it's a creeper, that quip ;-)

So, do we have any word on the respective totals for both camps? Wouldn't Google Docs be out too, as Google is pretty gay friendly?

Does this mean that all our texts will not be
"right justified" anymore? Just wondering.

LifeQueer, that's right! Google has the gayglers!
