  1. Andy,

    Can you post some info, or have Ari shed some light, on when we could possibly expect some movement on the Prop 8 trial? Thanks!

  2. Man, compare this clip to the disastrous CNN footage of Don Lemon speaking to Jeffrey Toobin. Lemon managed to get every detail of his segment completely wrong, mistaking New York's previous attempts at the issue with Prop 8 in California (!?!), and reporting that NY is the most populous state in the nation. Great job Don. It's like saying that Martin Luther King was killed in the Ford Theater in Dallas by John David Chapman. Thanks to Thomas Roberts there's at least one openly gay newscaster who's not completely embarrassing. MSNBC has its problems, but CNN is a total joke now.

  3. And Kudos to Socarides too. (Though I will say he needs another zinger than just the marriage license joke.)
