Your thoughts

is there a way to shut off the answers.com popup? every time I try to scroll through the tweets it pops up in the way, about every 2 seconds. Really annoying.

It does, ZnSd?! It's only supposed to pop up when you docuble click a word -- to give readers a definition, if needed.

If you want to follow... its Teddy Partridge at FDL doing the great keyboarding! Must have been a court reporter!
I especially like this part of N Cott's testimony this am:
B: What has been the trajectory of the stregth of marriage as laws have changed?
C: The definition and regulation of marriage by the states has moved toward symmetry and equality of the two partners, with fewer restrictions of the CHOICE of marital partners. Shift has been toward emphasizing the zone of privacy and intimacy, away from the prescriptions of the state about what should go on. Away from governance and toward LIBERTY.
B: How do those trends bear on whether same gender couples should be allowed to marry?
C: Leans toward the appropriateness of same-sex couples marrying. As roles are no longer expected to meet man/woman differences are no longer work-related; no longer a founding feature of marriage in our society. Other restirctions on choice of marital partner — where there has seemed to be constitutional restirctions, like race was seen — have fallen away while the state still enforces some partnership rules.

Oh I do believe the nail in the coffin has just been hammered on the second day with the "save the children" "defense."

Goodbye haters!

Olsen is beyond good!

3:46 pm - So what's happening my sleep-deprived mind is confused... They're trying again to get some of these documents from Yon8 like the one implying inferiority of gay couples and they succeeded? Or failed? I know they failed on one of them but this is a second attempt?
