For those of you living under a rock . . .

the California Supreme Court announced yesterday that sexual orientation, like race or gender, "does not constitute a legitimate basis upon which to deny or withhold legal rights." In other words, gay marriage is legal in California. For those of you who may not know, I am a flaming liberal and am obviously pleased with this ruling. Ellen Degeneres announced on her show yesterday that she and long time partner Portia are getting married. She also had this to say:

"I’m thrilled that the California supreme court overturned the ban on gay marriage. I can’t wait to get married. We all deserve the same rights, and I believe that someday we’ll look back on this and not allowing gays to marry will seem as absurd as not allowing women to vote.

P.S. I’m registered at Crate & Barrel."

That is why I love Ellen (sorry Glo).
