New posting plan.

I've noticed a mjority of traffic occurs at my blog after 6pm. Rather than post the news roundup twice a day with half the news getting missed, I thingk that an interesting new way to meet my readers' needs as well as expand the scope of the blog is to publish the news roundup in a single post at the end of the work day and post more analysis and commentary throughout the rest of the day. I've also noticed that I get a lot more traffic on days I focus on more local STATE2STATE stories, so i'd like to scale back the Washington talk and try to do more local news. Any thoughts, readers?

Finally, I've discussed with about 4 other people the possibility of adding a more diverse lineup of voices on here-which would be in lline with the shift from news round-up. If you would like to contribute to Ameriqueer, let me know.

Chris Geidner: In Iowa, judges are ousted.

Via Chris Geidner's Poliglot blog at Metro Weekly:


In Iowa, which declared Iowa's marriage ban unconstitutional under the state's constitution in 2009, the National Organization for Marriage got one of its first electoral victories this year. The judicial retention elections appear to have resulted in the replacement of all three justices up for a vote this year.

Here, as of 3:35 a.m. and with 1767 out of 1774 precincts reporting, are the Iowa Secretary of State's election results:

Supreme Court Justice David L. Baker
Yes 443437 45.75%
No 525865 54.25%

Supreme Court Justice Michael J. Streit
Yes 442459 45.6%
No 527921 54.4%

Supreme Court Chief Justice Marsha Ternus
Yes 437118 44.99%
No 534486 55.01%

The court was unanimous in its 2009 ruling that Iowa's constitution required marriage equality."

Can we trust Rasmussen anymore?


Happy Hour Roundup will be coming late today. Fortunately, there is lots of news to report on! Unfortunately, there will be no time for me to collect it and send it. Expect it between 5pm and 6pm!
