This Just In: All Quiet at the ConCon

My husband is down at the Constitutional Convention where they're about to debate the gay marriage issue. Apparently, a lot of the opposition just hasn't shown up.

The Massachusetts Family Institute (sorry, no link for you) asked its supporters to show up several hours before the 1 p.m. start time, but by 10 a.m. this morning, almost no one had shown. By noon, a few had come, but in nowhere near the numbers they turned out at the last ConCon. And apparently without many of the out-of-state church contingents with the scary little kids threatening my husband with a horrible death from AIDS for supporting gay marriage rights.

Maybe the last few weeks have taught some people that there are more important things to worry about--poverty, disaster, and homelessness, to name a few--than denying loving, consenting adults the chance to marry.

Hell, at least there's fewer people yelling at my nice-guy husband. That's a start.
