It's a new day, yes indeedy.
However, we need to see that things aren't going to be super-special-fun-time and there's no fantasy tale here.
PZ makes a valid point, and we need to realize that things won't instantly change, and the changes that DO take place, will probably be minimal.
Granted, any change is better than any policy under Bush, but hopefully some good will come of it.
Sadly, Proposition 8 passed in California. I haven't been too totally invested in this issue, but it would have been good for the LGBT community for that to have died.
Oh well...at least I still have plenty of booze for later this week.
