Well, It's About Time

Per Creative Loafing Tampa:

In a a 7-2 decision Frida the U.S. Supreme Court voted to allow a an end to a delay on same sex marriage imposed in anticipation of appeals after a federal judge deemed the state's ban on same-sex marriage as unconstitutional. The request to extend the delay of course, came from Florida Attorney General, Pam Bondi.

I wonder how many taxpayer dollars and government employee labor hours Pam Bondi has wasted on various Hail Mary plays to save marriage apartheid in Florida? My guess is at least seven figures on the financial side and thousands of hours on the labor ... er, lawyer ... side.

I'm glad the matter is apparently done and over with, even though it makes the letter I wrote to the editor of the Gainesville, Florida Sun the other day obsolete.

The "issue" of same-sex marriage shouldn't have taken nearly as long to resolve as it has, because it's really simple: If you don't like the idea of same-sex marriage, don't marry someone of the same sex.

Wow! Easy, huh? It only gets complicated when some people suddenly come up with the idea that they're special snowflakes, born to rule, and that their preferences should therefore govern everyone else's actions.

Of course, that part isn't going to change just because the good guys won in this single instance. I'm sure Pam can and will come up with new ideas. And I can't help but like her just a little. After all, we have so much in common. For example, we both want to run my life.
