Good News and Good News of a completely different sort!

First the BIG good news: Federal Judge Walker has ruled California's Proposition 8 unconstitutional because it discriminates against a specific class of people, and therefore violates the 14th Amendment to the Constitution. This is what I've said all along. If the law allows a man to marry a woman but not a woman to marry a woman, than it is not a "fair" law. You could not deny a woman any other right that a man has, or vice versa.

The argument that gay marriage somehow diminishes the heterosexual kind is so ridiculous I can't imagine anyone actually making it. Equally noxious is the idea that since it was voted on, it is OK do deny people equal rights. If the state of California had voted to deny the rights of black people to marry, would that be constitutional? Of course not.

This case will go to the Supreme Court, where there are already 4 votes against it by the backward idiots Roberts, Alito, Scalia and Thomas. These 4 guys seem to only believe the constitution meant that rights belonged to corporations, not individuals, unless of course guns were involved. Hopefully the other 5 justices will see how silly this issue is.

The other good news is mostly for us here in Colorado. It was announced yesterday that a week-long professional bike race will take place next year here in the Centennial State. This state is a perfect place for a grueling bike race, and if sponsorship holds up could become a big deal. However, the impending legal action against Lance Armstrong, who had a lot to do with this happening, could kill it real fast. If Lance goes down as a PED user, no sponsor in the US is going to touch the sport.
