A Note, from Arkansas

Here, with so many shameful things in our state’s history, it’s nice to have the opportunity to be proud to be an Arkansan. The cause of this pride? Judge Chris Piazza’s ruling, yesterday, allowing the first legal gay marriages in all of the American South to occur in this state — my state — today.

Dare I hope that this is the beginning of a progressive trend here?

Judge Strikes Down Same-Sex Marriage Ban in Arkansas

Same-sex couples are getting legally married for the first time in Arkansas — today. I live in Arkansas. I didn’t expect to see this happen in my state for at least a decade.

Thank you, Judge Piazza.

(For more information, simply google “Arkansas gay marriage.” It’s all over the news.)
