It ain't easy being green (or gay)!

"I'm concerned about having to educate children," Sharon Smith said after she voted in Altadena.

Smith and other African American voters played a crucial role in the outcome. An exit poll of California voters showed that black voters sided in favor of the measure by margins of more than 2 to 1. Not only was the black vote weighted heavily in favor of Proposition 8, but black turnout -- spurred by Barack Obama's campaign for president -- was unusually large, making up roughly 10% of the voters.

So... they just passed the discrimination on.
How quick they forget.

Andrew... Welcome!

Very interesting artistic concept.
Documenting homophobia with pansies.

I hope he finds that he needs less & less of them in the future.
