Iowa Rocks!!

About 1 hour ago, the Iowa Supreme Court ruled their gay marriage ban as unconstitutional, allowing for the legal right for gays to marry. 

In Iowa!

I am so proud to be from Iowa. This comes as wonderful news, but you must know it isn't very shocking to me. Many folks think that "The Heartland" is synonymous with "Conservatives," but I have never found that to be completely accurate. Of course, I went to the ultra-liberal University of Iowa for my undergraduate degree, so I was surrounded by liberals for 5 of my formative years. Maybe just eastern Iowa is liberal.

But I don't think so! Not anymore! No more "conservative" or "liberal" talk. How about just, "the right thing to do?"  How about that?

Go Iowa!
