I was right

I am a GENIE-OUS! But if Walker reverses the stay and lets the gays marry, I’ll be the happiest person to be wrong ever.

NY Mag says we won

What a Day

First, RIP Howard Zinn and JD Salinger. Strange to lose such great men on the same day. Perhaps they’d been keeping themselves alive for the State of the Union.
