Be sure to read my Western Tribune Column which follows this post.

And check out Bessemer Science and Nature to learn about recycling plastics and recycling in general in Bessemer.

I had something prepared to write about, but NEWS FLASH.

The Iowa Supreme Court just ruled in a unanimous decision that Same Sex Marriage is legal. Des Moines Register.

Iowa becomes the third state to legalize equality in marriage, following Massachusetts and Connecticut.

“The Iowa statute limiting civil marriage to a union between a man and a woman violates the equal protection clause of the Iowa Constitution,” the justices said in a summary of their decision.

Progress marches on. Equality marches on. The dream becomes reality.

The fight is being won. This is in the "heartland."

Now we just need to see the Prop 8 overturned in California. And maybe a "southern state."
