An open line and pride banners held high; stay tuned for judicial maneuvering details

Sorry for the inactivity. I've been busy. Here's an open line. But stay tuned for tomorrow, when I'll be passing along some new things I've learned about the unconscionable delay by the Arkansas Supreme Court in handling the same-sex marriage case in Arkansas.

The photo above comes from Jack Wagoner, lead attorney in the federal lawsuit that produced a ruling invalidating the Arkansas ban on same-sex marriage and a supporting attorney in the state case with Cheryl Maples.

A business trip took him to San Francisco this weekend. He sent the photo of people celebrating in the Castro district. It was "awesome" there today, he said. I believe his photo shows him getting an affectionate welcome. CORRECTION: I talked to Jack after writing this and found he was not on business, but on the West Coast to attend Saturday night's Grateful Dead concert in Santa Clara, Calif.

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
