Prop. 8: Newsweek article worth reading, plus a fun video

Ted Olson and David Boies
Yes, I'm back on Proposition 8, the "law" that denies equal rights to same-sex couples who wish to marry. Prop. 8 is clearly unconstitutional, and one of the two lawyers who fought to overturn it wrote an excellent article in Newsweek.

The two lawyers are liberal David Boies, and conservative Ted Olson (appointed by Bush). Who do you think wrote the article? Wrong! It was the conservative one - Ted Olson! He explains why this so-called law should be a concern for everybody, not just gay people. Please read it!

On a lighter note, here is an excellent video about Prop. 8. The music in the video is Adam Lambert singing Sam Cooke's "A Change Is Gonna Come." The wonderful underlying video of Adam's performance was created by Jack "Angel" Montana.
