This is good news. The California State Supreme Court decided today to hear the problems with Prop. 8. It denied a stay (which would have allowed marriages to continue). Here is the website that discusses all the relevant material.
There were a few ‘laywers’ who petitioned the court to ask it not to look at Prop. 8. Here is a little bit of a petition written by The Kingdom of Heaven: World Divine Mission:
Here is a bit more (further down):
Abortion? I thought Prop. 8 was about Same Sex Marriage and the fact that a right was voted away? Anyway, it continues:

So this is what the Yes on 8 people are relying on to keep Prop. 8 the law? A letter like this cannot help the Yes on 8 people…
On another piece of news, I am down and out with the flu. Ironically, I was supposed to get a free flu shot at Microsoft either yesterday or today. Today was particularly bad. I decided to go into my office anyway and did just fine in my first class. But right after class was over I couldn’t stop shivering. I made some tea and was sipping that when a wave a nausea hit. It was all I could do to stand up, shut my office door and immediately lie on the floor. The bathroom is on the other side of the building and there was no way I could make it in time. I think I stayed there for about 10 minutes (without vomiting) and got up and shuffled to the bathroom. It was at that time I decided to cancel my noon course. So I hopped in the car, drove home and have been asleep all afternoon.
And I can’t believe I would get this when Norman is here. Craig, his partner arrives tomorrow as well and they will be leaving on Sunday evening. I hope this is calmed down enough by Saturday so we can go up to the Castro!
