Thanks, Governor Moon Beam

The folks who are pushing passage of Proposition 8 in California's November election aren't too thrilled with Attorney General Jerry Brown. In fact, they are accusing him of trying to influence the voting.
In order to make the intention of Proposition 8 as clear as possible, Brown changed some of the wording in the measure.
It now reads, in part: "Eliminates the right of same-sex couples to marry". The original text read, in part, that the bill would place a 'limit on marriage'.
Thanks to Brown people can now see that there is a huge difference between placing a 'limit on marriage' (whatever that means) and taking away rights.
I've always liked Jerry Brown.
Clarification, however, is not enough to guarantee the bill's defeat.
In November, if you are a registered voter in California, get out and vote 'no' on Proposition 8 because it's the right thing to do.

I've always liked him, too. Thanks for reminding us of his courage and dedication to 'right'.
