Out of the Mouths of Babes

While standing in the rain during the Con-Con this week, my son--a veteran of many State House visits to lobby in support of equal marriage rights--noticed that there weren't as many of the "others" on the opposite side of the street as he expected. (My husband, in fact, mentioned that he'd expected a much larger turnout himself, particularly given the amount of out-of-state money being poured into the anti-gay-marriage movement.)

Jim and I offered several reasons for the lower turnout--the rain, the low spot on the agenda (meaning that they wouldn't get to a vote, which is exactly what happened), and summer vacations.

"Vacations? That could be it," said The Boy. "Even evil has to take a break sometime, Mom!"

Why thank you. I gave birth to him myself, you know. :-)
