Quote For The Day

"“When any society says that I cannot marry a certain person, that society has cut off a segment of my freedom,” - Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  in 1958.

May one woman who pioneered the fight for marriage equality, the remarkable Mildred Loving, rest in peace. There's a lovely obit here. Her work is not over for the last Americans denied the right to marry the person they love. And in California, we may be facing our next civil rights watershed, as the state court prepares to issue its own ruling 60 years after it was the first state to invalidate anti-miscegenation laws in 1948. The work goes on. But Loving's poignant, quiet heroism will always inspire.
