Proposition 8 Ruled Unconstitutional!

I had to get out and celebrate the news out from the West Coast that Prop 8 is ruled unconstitutional. As the judge said himself, "Proposition 8 fails to advance any rational basis in singling out gays and lesbians for denial of a marriage license" (this from Marc Ambinder at the Atlantic).

So I headed down to Mount Vernon to celebrate. First I had a Flying Dog (draft, $4.25) at the Grand Central - where I struggled as fast as I could to get away from some annoying drunk bragging about a $5000 bonus he got while I'm here trying to find a full time job. Happily fleeing that drunken fool, I skidded on over to the Mt. Vernon Stable for a slice of Pimlico cake ($6.50).

Come on, Maryland, it is time!
