U.S. Sen. Orrin Hatch, a Mormon and personally opposed to same-sex marriage, spoke bluntly and sensibly on its legal inevitability during a radio interview yesterday:
Let's face it: anybody who does not believe that gay marriage is going to be the law of the land just hasn't been observing what's going on.

And also:

Sooner or later gay marriage is probably going to be approved by the Supreme Court of the United States, and certainly as the people in this country move toward it, especially young people.

Somebody get Jason Rapert up to Utah to assemble a crowd of black preachers to start talking about recalling Hatch.

  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
