the bay area bubble

sometimes i forgot how much of a bubble i live in here in the bay area. with the results of the election in, it appears that prop 8 has been passed. this is the amendment to ban gay marriage. i had always thought that living in california, it would have been an easy prop to defeat. but as the results streamed in and it was close to a 50-50 vote, i also forgot how big the religious vote can factor into these types of moral issues.

it’s one of those things that i sort of took for granted, but the results today are a wake up call.
