On the sofa with my pug in the Lower Pacific Heights district of San Francisco. It's sunny and pleasant. Nice breeze.

Be warned the backers of Prop 8 in California were very successful in turning the debate into a "Save the Children" campaign. Nearly all the Yes on 8 ads featured children or parents being negatively impacted by gay marriage. Most of the ads had tag lines like "Protect Children! Restore Traditional Marriage! or Gay Marriage WILL be taught in schools unless we PASS Prop 8. Don't remember any baby seals, but the Yes on 8 crowd seem like they'd be pro seal clubbing.
