--Hamlet in Something Rotten, Jasper Fforde
Things are quiet here. Made brunch, watched some news, did some housework, wrote a little.
It's no surprise that this rather stunning news got lost in the shuffle this week, but I wanted to mention it anyway: the California State Senate is now the first legislative body to pass a bill legalizing same-sex marriage without being required to do so by the courts. It's highly unlikely to pass the Assembly, the Governator has suggested that he wouldn't sign it anyway (despite claiming to support the issue in the past), and there's concern about fallout regarding the upcoming propositions, but still. I take a little smug pride in the fact that the bill was written by my Assemblyman.
