As reported by Bryan, while the Virginia legislature continues to regress further and further away from the positions of the vast majority of Virginia voters, out in California, the battle of the airwaves over the Prop 8 decision that will likely be issued before this summer is heating up.

This lovely tribute to some of the human beings who will be impacted by the failure of the California Supreme Court to live up to its original, correct ruling on marriage is from the people at Courage Campaign, and the artist Regina Spektor.

Join the crowd and sign the petition if you are so moved (after watching this, how couldn't you be?). The people who stand in the way of progress on GLBT civil rights are on the wrong side of history--most of us know that. But watching something like this is a nice reminder of what's at stake. Our families. Your families. And your friends, neighbors, and co-workers' families. That's what's at stake.
