Bell Curve The Law Talking Guy Raised by Republicans U.S. West
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."

The Public Relations Barometer

If you were wondering how the market is betting on Proposition 8, the November ballot measure that would eliminate the right to same-sex marriage in California, we may have an answer. Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) announced today they have donated $250,000 to Equality California to oppose Proposition 8. Moreover, PG&E has become a founding member of the "Equality Business Advisory Council," a group established to challenge other businesses to support full gay rights.

After the power crises in California several years ago, PG&E is still trying hard to rehabilitate its image. Apparently, PG&E reckons a huge contribution in support of gay marriage is now a good PR move in California! When taken together with similar surprising shows of support from LAPD Chief Bratton, San Diego Mayor Sanders, and Governor Schwarzenegger, it becomes increasingly clear that smart California businessmen and politicians believe Californians soundly reject Proposition 8. This is the best news I've heard all week.

I'm sure PG&E was asked to make the donation by the Democrats who have the power to make life unhappy for PG&E, and they happily buy peace and freedom from investigations with the money they stole from the people of California when power prices went sky-high a few years ago. Just saying.
