Weather Report

In case those of you who live in other states were wondering, there have been no reports of fire or brimstone hailing down on California since Monday at 5:01 pm. Despite what the self-appointed moral guardians of America would have us believe, there have been no unusual clusters of lightning strikes, hails of frogs, or total darkness.

In fact, if one would like to use the weather as an indication of their particular divinity's stance on California allowing same-sex marriage, one would have to assume that said divinity is pretty darn happy. Across the state, we're having nothing but gorgeous weather.

Those who believe that said divinity wants them to be financially successful might wish to have a gander at economic projections, which predict that same-sex marriages will add hundreds of millions of dollars to the state economy, in both wedding and tourism sectors.

The only slightly troubling sign has been George Takei and his new husband flashing the "live long and prosper" salute at every interview. I suppose it's appropriate under the circumstances, but it's still a little disconcerting to see it coming from Mr. Sulu.
