And wuv, twoo wuv.

Some signal boosting of things I found illuminating relating to Prop 8, marriage, and all that, presented mostly without comment because I don't have brainage to actually say anything coherent at the moment.

Lawyerly interpretation of what the Prop 8 decision means. (Daily Kos) It sounds like the CA Supremes may have limited the impact of Prop 8 to ONLY affecting use of the word 'marriage' as a label, not to anything substantive. I move we just call it 'mawwidge', ala Princess Bride, instead.

Some math relating to marriage bans. (Five Thirty Eight -- from back in April, when Iowa legalized it.) I like trying to predict the future with math; even when it turns out to be wrong, it's still kinda interesting.

Red Family, Blue Family. A 2005 essay by Doug Muder about the differences between liberal & conservative understandings of family & marriage, and why some people get wigged-out by something that seems perfectly reasonable to others. Wrong in many ways, I'm sure, but I felt like I understood a little more after reading it than I did before.
