Some good news. Even though we’re likely throwing off many of the precepts which have defined America for over 230 years, we’re not throwing off ALL the precepts that have defined every civilization for all of recorded history.

So essentially, for me, it’s like I got shanked last night in the prison yard but they didn’t twist it or break off the handle. Hey, you’ve got to take the good news where you can get it.

This is my way of saying that it looks like all three of the marriage amendments passed.

With 84 percent of the vote in, Florida is voting for marriage 62 percent to 38 percent.

Arizona’s is up 56 to 43 percent.

And in California, it looks like it’s passing by one percent.

It’s a little sad that we count as a victory that people admit something as fundamental and obvious as marriage being between a man and a woman but we’ll take what we can get.

I’m a little tired and sad so I’m not as pleased with this as I should be. It is good news.
