Same Sex Marriage and Society 

Three (or more) cheers to the governments of Canada and Spain, for moving clearly down the road of Doing The Right Thing, against strong opposition from powerful forces (especially in Spain). This is so heartening to me for many reasons, not the least of which is that it's clear evidence that history is progressing in a positive direction.

Rivka links to a fascinating discussion and analysis of the Canadian situation...read her reaction as well, it's similarly interesting. I'm not sure where I come down on the idea of efficiency versus values deciding a governmental system - it seems a bit simplistic to me - and so I need to read the book. Canadian politics is a fascinating thing as well, I think, since they seem to in-between in so many ways, between Catholic France and Socialist France and Secular America and Imperial Britain. Well worth a read.
