Student with banned photo grateful for support

Student with banned photo grateful for support - State -
"A teenage lesbian whose senior picture has been banned from her high school year book because she posed in a tuxedo says she's gratified by the support she's received.

In an interview with The Clarion-Ledger, 17-year-old Ceara Sturgis said people from all over the country 'have told me I'm this hero. They are my heroes.'

Copiah County School District Superintendent Rick Cloption said federal court decisions uphold the district's decision not to publish the photograph.

Sturgis is a student at Wesson Attendance Center. She is a National Honors Society student and is active in school athletics and a number of other extracurricular activities."

I'm definitely keeping you posted on this one as more information comes out. Its a tux for Pete's sake.

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?
