Sweet is that Prop 2, a measure to improve the welfare of 20 million farmed animals in the state, passed. Resoundingly. It's not ending cruelty to farmed animals by any stretch but it is making life a smidgen nicer for the time they are raised for slaughter.
Bitter is that Prop 8, a measure that would deny the rights of same-sex partners to marry, seems to be winning. Our state's Constitution is not supposed to be used for discrimination and hate. I'll hope that, because it's such a close call, that tolerance will prevail and No votes will win. It's a slim hope but one I'm going to cling to, nevertheless.
