Maine and marriage. June 27, 2011 Posted by Mookie
PortCon Maine was a mellow, relaxing convention. Thanks to everyone who came by to say "hi" and chatted with me. I had a lot of fun, as always.

But something altogether wonderful happened on Friday night. I had just come home from dinner in downtown Portland and caught the live feed of the NY state senate vote to legalize same-sex marriage, which passed. It was thrilling to watch. I may call myself a "Bostonian" nowadays, but I was born in New York and it's nice to see my home state embrace compassion and equal rights on this issue.

While I'm on the subject, I hope the repeal of Proposition 8 in California gets out of its legal limbo soon.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on.
