My New Heroes

Did you hear about what happened in Texas last night?

State Senator Wendy Davis launched a nearly 12-hour filibuster to block Republicans' extreme anti-abortion bill that would impact millions of women. The rules dictated that she couldn't break for food or water, she couldn't sit or lean on her desk the entire time, she couldn't even use the bathroom--but she succeeded! The bill has been tabled for now. She stood up for women in Texas and everywhere and she won.

This woman has some serious ovaries.

Did you hear about what happened today in the U.S. Supreme Court?

There was a rare moment of sanity. Adios Prop 8 and DOMA. No dejes que la puerta te golpee en el culo a la salida.



  1. I posted a comment on another blog today to congratulate the City of Fort Worth for picking a truly great state senator to represent them, and I meant every word of it. Democratic feelings are starting to run high in these parts. Last night's action in Austin had a little taste of miracle to it. We need some serious changes around here, Jon. Thank you for your comments and good wishes.

    1. Thank you for your comment, Bill. You are correct on all points.
