Lawrence Lessig is an inspiration. In honor of him and many other fair-minded Californians, I retract my earlier harsh words about their pacific state.
Hours after the vile proposition 8 passed, Prof. Lessig rallies us to pick up the pieces and restart a campaign to convince our neighbors about equal protection. This isn't his battle… his marriage has nothing to gain or lose either way. And yet Prof. Lessig commits to this, recognizing that discrimination against any of us diminishes all of us. That sentiment finally brings forth the tears of joy that I can now share with so many fellow patriots on this historic day. Thanks.
