Two good news items today

First, Jan Brewer woke up and smelled the coffee - the angry, angry economic coffee, of course - and vetoed Arizona's Jim Queer law. This doesn't by any means change the hearts of those in the legislature who voted for it, or those in the state who support it, but it does avoid enshrining hate and discrimination into the law there.

(Plus, won't someone think of those poor Christian bakers having to make cakes for adulterous second marriages? Or atheists?)

Also, a federal judge struck down marriage discrimination in Texas - that's even bigger than Utah! Sure, it's on hold pending appeal, but (as Scalia predicted, much to his I'm sure chagrin) since Windsor knocked off DOMA, not one federal or state court has upheld bans.
