The Columbia Critic

A place to debate anything we want to. We'll talk Columbia campus issues. We'll talk up the homosexual problem. We'll talk China. And we'll talk without resorting to partisan rhetoric. We may be left. We may be right. But we aren't going to be quoting any party line. We're leading the discussion. But feel free to chime in. Hannity and Colmes this is not.

When Two Become One

California, the vanguard of the nation, has proved its provincial powers to excercise equal rights is unmatched anywhere else in the country. By the slender vote of 41 to 35 a great leap was taken forward for gay marriage.

Many believe that Arnie will take out the ax and chop the dream away, but to come this far, it is cause for celebration, speculation and something else..ation.

This post is mostly aimed to get some feedback: what do y'all think is going to happen, not happen. I can post my strong preferences for equal rights, but I think that is better served at another time. For now: we have a present that is waiting for an answer.

    I don't follow Cali as closely as I wish I did, but this seems like, if it comes down to a governor's veto, it will serve as the single most defining moment of Schwarzenegger's adminstration, where he will set the tone either for a next election smearing by Democrats, or will regain enough of his original luster to maintain office.

    I for one hope he supports it; it would send a powerful message that would overshadow the narrowness of the House vote. How is the Senate split, though, D and R?
