A Good Goggie

My mom called this morning to let me know that Comet had taken a turn for the worse over the weekend and that they put her to sleep this morning.  Comet was a good, old dog, and we got to love her for 16 years.  :(

So proud, yet so disappointed

I am so proud of the United States at this moment.  As I read various articles this morning, I still found myself on the verge of crying with happiness.  I am unable to truly express how I feel.  Thankfully, Cherie Priest said it much better than I ever could, but then she is a writer.  :)

Meanwhile, I am sorely disappointed in my adopted home.  I do not understand how millions of people could go to the polls and vote discrimination into the state constitution.  I have friends and know of friends of friends whose marriages are now in jeopardy and may not even exist in a few weeks.  How can we deny the right of any 2 consenting adults to be happy in life?
