Obama Administration Drops Defense of DOMA!

Just when I am feeling really down about the fact that Wisconsin and Indiana are attempting to take away workers' right, about the fact that people are still listening to Beck, and Limbaugh is calling my First Lady FAT, just when I realize that may Canada won't be too cold.. something good happens.

It's another baby step, but according to this quick story from the Human Rights Campaign, it is a step in the right direction.. another step toward equality.

We have to appreciate the little steps, since the big ones aren't happening!

Hey, it's progress! With any luck, DOMA will be repealed soon.

It is progress! Forward progress.

Equality will come for our GLBT friends. And maybe other stuff won't be too screwed up when it does!

You're right to applaud this step. What hard times these are! We cannot relax, we cannot assume, and we cannot stay on top of it all. I'm exhausted most days by the news. And, often, I am so full of anxiety about some headline-grabber that I fail to take in and appreciate the quiet, significant steps.

Hope all's well with you and yours!

Holy cow! Rush thinks Michelle is fat? Pardon me, I have some serious googling to do.
