Hi Justin. Lorenna here. Did you lie Reginald Sheperd's poetry? Just a little note to see if your mag was going to do anything special for him, and his ealry death? It'd be quite appropriate, I believe. Big hug, lorenna.
Nice pictures, very illustrative. Sadly in Florida our prop to ban gay marriage worked. Their campaign was forward, and well funded.

Lisa,
It was great to protest & to do it with such great company. I'm about to post some video that my friend Justin recorded.

Sibille, My UK Angel-- The following is from http://www.noonprop8.com:
"Proposition 8:
ELIMINATES RIGHT OF SAME-SEX COUPLES TO MARRY. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT

Changes California Constitution to eliminate right of same-sex couples to marry. Provides that only a marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.

Fiscal Impact: Over the next few years, potential revenue loss, mainly sales taxes, totaling in the several tens of millions of dollars, to state and local governments. In the long run, likely little fiscal impact to state and local governments."
