As you may or may not know, the Iowa Legislature is preparing to vote on whether or not gay marriage will continue to be legal in our state. I was proud when it became legal; most people were amazed that this legislation would come out of the heartland. Most people don't think about Iowa politics except at the beginning of each presidential campaign, when we caucus. (which is a thrilling sport, and not to be taken lightly) Most people do not expect Iowa to have a liberal bent, but we do, both politically and (to a lesser degree), socially. Every now and then we surprise the rest of the world and pull something fantastic out of our collective feed cap. The gay marriage ruling was one of those fantastic things. Now, unfortunately, some Iowans want to reverse that legislation. But here's something else to make me proud to be an Iowan. This young man says it all:
Pax et bonum,
~O~
