Iowa, a new tourist destination? Not really. Every four years, at the start of the presidential campaign, it's a destination for wannabe candidates. But yesterday, on the same day that the Vermont House gave civil unions "a respecful burial" and voted for marriage equality (without a court order, I might add), the Iowa Supremee Court upheld same-sex couples' right to marry, prompting some people to say that midwestern LBGTs now have a place to tie the knot.
"So keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't you forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin' ass and celebratin' the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was." - Molly Ivins 1944-2007
THIS IS ME...
... I blog from BURLINGTON, VERMONT. I'm a hustler about civic engagement & social action and I'll make publicity against a world that degrades and shames whatever way I can. Joy!
