Congratulations, USA! I've not been following the US elections closely, so have only heard Barak Obama saying how change is coming to America. I've not heard him say anything at all about the detail, so I'll be interested to see what he actually does.

Assuming he doesn't get shot first, of course.

Less happy is the prospect of California's Proposition 8 being passed, and it looks possible that'll happen (47:42 last time I looked). Proposition 8 is a hateful campaign, strongly supported by the religious right, seeking to define marriage as being between one man and one woman, thereby excluding same-sex marriages. Once again, religion sets itself up as in some magical way authorised to interfere in the private lives of others.
