Equality will come,so why not now?
Aubrey Loots and Danny Leclair just got married Jan. 1 in Pasadena, Calif. Specifically, they got married atop the AIDS Healthcare Foundation wedding cake float during the Rose Bowl Parade. Congrats to the happy couple. I have a feeling they will have a long marriage.
The vast majority of those lining the streets of the parade likely were cheering them on. Family and friends were either there in person or watching on television. California once again has marriage equality for gays and lesbians.
Heck, even in Utah there is marriage equality. I viewed pictures on the Internet that showed happy and joyful couples (with their friends and family) marrying in a state that few believed would see same-sex marriages anytime soon.
Sometimes progress is baby or incremental steps, and sometimes it comes so fast that it takes your breath away.
A marriage equality ban was defeated late in 2012 in Minnesota and soon after, full marriage equality was voted in in that state. Marriage equality in Maine, Maryland, Illinois, Hawaii, Washington and now Utah. All in basically the past year.
Now, there are those afraid of the ability of gays and lesbians to marry in Indiana. They want to ban these marriages through a state constitutional amendment, though history and the public tide is not on their side. Even if they win, in the short term, the question will not be if there is marriage equality in Indiana, but when — and not just when, but why not now?
Ordinance should have fixed dB level
There are may articles about the Tipton County wind ordinance and its shortcomings.
Is Mr. Walker’s hearing now the problem? Or is the wind turbine noise the problem? Mr. Walker’s hearing is in no way going to affect the people in the rest of Tipton County. Wind turbine noise will.
