Once More Unto the Breach, Dear Friends

I know it's old news, but 2 days ago Prop 8 was once more declared unconstitutional.  (http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2010/08/prop8-gay-marriage.html)  Who hasn't heard about this?

I bring it up now because my feeling about it had been, "Yeah, yeah.  So what.  The RB's (as DH and I call the extreme right, for religious bigots) will just ignore the blatant fact that the issue is unconstitutional and put it on the next ballot again, just as they've done so many times in the past." 

I was actually pretty down, thinking about it.  But a friend of mine maintained that changes like these take decades, and she, for one, was going to be optimistic about it.  I decided she was right, and I would once more apply myself to positive thinking.  (Thanks, Turtle.)

This is a huge victory, and THIS time, law, rationality, and sanity WILL prevail.  They will.
