Yes We Can. . . But Not in California

I am ecstatic about the election of Senator Barack Obama as the 44th President of the United States of America. I was briefly disappointed that I had moved away from Chicago some 15 months ago - but then I remembered the traffic, the pollution, and the fast-pace of life and got over it!

However, as delighted as this presidential outcome makes me, I am equally disgusted by the passage of Proposition 8 in California.

One step forward for human rights. . . one step back.

As so many baseball teams like to say, "Maybe next year. . . "
