By this week's 'Ugly Betty,' we may know fate of ugly bias

by Jeremy Hooper

200903040843Did you know that on Thursday, when the California Supreme Court hears arguments for and against overturning Proposition 8, that we might actually learn the outcome before day's end? It's true:

The California Supreme Court may reveal Thursday whether it intends to uphold Proposition 8, and if so, whether an estimated 18,000 same-sex marriages will remain valid, during a high-stakes televised session that has sparked plans for demonstrations throughout the state.

By now, the court already has drafted a decision on the case, with an author and at least three other justices willing to sign it. Oral arguments sometimes result in changes to the draft, but rarely do they change the majority position. The ruling is due in 90 days.

So keep your fingers crossed for Thursday, kiddies. By week's end, we may know whether California will once again grant us the freedom to put a ring on the same.
