I've said this before, but it has a specific resonance today.
In the past, the intellectual elite and the courts were ahead of the people. I think these days at least on issues of basic decency it's not true, and in some cases it's the other way around. Atrios is more right than he knows. The Mayors of San Francisco and Chicago are both Catholic, and neither consider themselves to be out on a limb as far as their constituents, and consciences, are concerned. I was worried that the Massachusetts decision was pushing it beyond where the public wanted to go, but I think I was wrong.
This will be something for historians to discuss, but somewhere between Queer Eye for the Straight Guy and the current political crisis, the dam broke. It's over.

The movie on ABC tonight was centered on a love triangle between a man a woman and a chimpanzee.
