Today in History

Same-sex marriage was legalized on this day in 2015 when the Supreme Court ruled in the Obergefell v. Hodges case.

Just a reminder that sometime justice is delivered.

      A few years ago a street here in Portland which had previously been named after a pro-slavery politician was re-named after Harvey Milk. Progress, little by little.

        We were still located in King County, Washington, when it was renamed. Google is a wonderful research tool.
        Originally King County was named for William Rufus de Vane King, a plantation owner who advocated for the Compromise of 1850 – it contained the fugitive slave act.
        In an economical move, the King County Council repudiated his values by renaming the county after Martin Luther King, Jr.
        I don’t think they even had to get the stationary reprinted. It was 1986.

    And it wasn’t the proudest moment in CA history when voters passed Prop (H)8, denying the queers and the ‘mos, (Not the Moos, tho Devin Nunes’s parents threw a buncha $$$ Ameros in the pot,) the right to git hitched. You could still get lynched, or fired or maybe even branded as someone’s property, I don’t know, but it went down in flames once the Supremes took aim at it.

    Compromise solution: erect a statue of Robert E. Lee and Jefferson Davis holding hands and kissing.
