Report: California Proposition 8 Decision Coming Down on Thursday
Multiple reports have begun trickling in that the California Supreme Court will hand down its decision on Proposition 8. Also, barricades have begun appearing in San Francisco's Castro neighborhood, and around the Supreme Court building. It has also been reported that the SFPD and San Diego police departments have been alerted to the rulings.
We should know sometime this morning PDT.
That said, groups have been preparing for reaction to the announcement, whatever it might be.
