OK, maybe I can't put up a post with actual content, but I can at least link to one. This post at Shakesville has given me a new hero, Iowa State Senate Majority Leader Mike Gronstal. Melissa has put up a video of Senator Gronstal explaining why he won't co-sponsor a bill to amend the Iowa constitution to outlaw gay marriage. Go, watch. How a fellow with that much sense and compassion ever got elected is a mystery. No doubt some of his constituents will be outraged. It may even cost him the next election. But he's right. Good on you, Senator!
