Right back where we started from!

Eureka! The great state of California and its progressive citizens have chosen... the status quo. But that's a good thing, when the alternative is a hard-core power grab by Ahhhnold. One would think he'd have known better, with poll numbers sagging, than to attack public employees and unions in a left-wing state. Will it be "lesson learned" for the governator? Or will he follow the lead of his GOP elders and refuse to listen when the people tell him to stuff it?

Importantly, too, Proposition 73 (parental notification for minor abortions) failed 52%-47%, despite a last-ditch effort by conservatives to guilt Cali's evangelicals to the polls. A Christian right leader on NPR this morning lamented that they had been out-spent 3-1. I for one am glad my Planned Parenthood donations are paying off, so to speak.

I am punchy today as I arrived at my desk with satchel and shining morning face ready for an 8am meeting, only to find out that the meeting had been cancelled at 2am by a harried associate (and rescheduled for tomorrow morning 8am, what joy).

Ah Lillyfirm, your minions do march into battle smiling wide, we do.

Indeed! I believe we have pissed off California Conservatives but good. Just wait 'til next year... they will be all amped up and ready to trash Domestic Partnerships. I can't wait.

Welcome back by the way! Love the photos.

Thanks. Happy Birthday, btw! Sorry we missed it (we were having the most surreal, horrid night we've had in a while... will tell you about it soon)...
