Hooray for Wendy, and all the protesters who helped! Last night, before I went to bed, I was worried because I wasn't sure if the Senate vote was legal or not, but I'm happy this morning to find out that it was after midnight. The anti-abortion bill is dead for now. Of course the war is not over. We'll have to see if Rick Perry calls another special session; if he does we'll have to protest and filibuster again.
In other news the Supreme Court struck down DOMA at long last. So hooray for all married couples that can now receive federal benefits like they deserve. I'm still pissed at the court about the Voting Rights Act, but we'll deal with that later.
