Well, he's kind of had it in for me ever since I accidentally ran over his dog. Actually, replace "accidentally" with "repeatedly," and replace "dog" with "son."

Another Civil Rights Victory

NY times reports that South Africa's highest court has unanimously ruled in favor of gay marriage! They have stayed their ruling to give the legislature a year to comply (they are expected to do so) and if they fail to do so, South Africa's marriage laws will become gender neutral automatically. The list of countries where gay marriage is allowed--Canada, Spain, the Netherlands, and Belgium--will soon add South Africa to the roster. And we might as well add Massachusetts too. Let's call it 5.5 nations?

The tide is turning. So maybe I was wrong. Maybe the Democrats should come out clearly in favor of gay marriage.

Raise your hand if you thought 20 years ago that South Africa would be a pioneering country for civil rights. Anyone?
