Zombie kids: they walk around, glazed look in their eyes, arms outstretched, constant refrain on their lips: "phone. phone. phone."

Since this subject is so important I'm willing to overlook +chee chew appalling lack of capitalization and reshare it. So consider this an endorsement of the content, not the style :)
 
referendum 74: same-sex marriage in washington

full page add in sunday's seattle times: http://media.theolympian.com/smedia/2012/10/14/09/59/1589tD.So.38.pdf

google has a reputation for actively participating in policy debates surrounding information access, technology and energy.  we do not generally take positions on social, legal or political issues that arise beyond our normal, day-to-day business.  with that said, there are issues that are so important that we feel compelled to lend our voice. 

+Sergey Brin  blogged about this during california's proposition 8 vote (http://googleblog.blogspot.co.uk/2008/09/our-position-on-californias-no-on-8.html). next month the issue is coming for a vote in our state of washington.  

we are proud to support Yes on R74, to uphold washington state's marriage equality law. 

i hope to see washington become the first state to make this legal by popular vote.

A great way to let Google know that a YouTube Channel is legitimately associated with your site.

Stuck on the tarmac at EWR. What happened? Did someone at the airport decline to endorse Christie?

There are many political issues about which I feel very strongly, yet skeptic that I am I can usually also see the other side. I may not agree with people who hold the opposite view but I don't think unkindly of them simply for holding it. Gay marriage however is a whole different matter. This is one issue on which there is clealry a right side and a wrong side. Not just a difference of opinion but an actual morally wrong side.
When California's prop 8 was on the ballot I spent a fruitless morning reading virtually the entirety of the supporting side's web site looking for some nugget of justification for the ban. I will readily admit that I understand people's frustration when a judge overturns a law that they supported. Nobody likes to see the referee disqualify the winning goal. But that's not a justification for the ban itself. In fact nowhere on the site was there any rational explanation of why we should prevent some people from marrying those they love. Nada. Zilch. The only justification ever given is "the Bible". That's the same as saying: I want to deny you this right because I believe you shouldn't have it. Period.
No morally just person could possibly support a ban on gay marriage. It is one of the great injustices of our time.Circumstances have conspired to hand us a litmus test for people's character. I believe we should use it aggressively. There are many times in life where we'd like a quick reading of someone's moral compass: are they a good person or not. For example: meeting friends of friends, first dates, or political campaigns. Now we have a single question that will at least weed out some jerks masquerading as decent folks.
