RP--Will you be in purple Wednesday?

Reese’s Pieces � Blog Archive � Will you be in purple Wednesday?:

"After the tragic deaths of nearly a dozen teens in the past month following relentless anti-LGBT bullying, a few kids on Facebook have banded together to send a message to the world that the bullycides must stop, and that there is indeed hope.

They asked that folks who support their effort to end the bullycides wear purple on Wednesday. They got quite a response.

Their facebook event, “R.I.P. ;; In memory of the recent suicides due to gay abuse, wear purple,” has nearly 1.5 million attendees, 300,000 maybes, and 3 million waiting for reply. Imagine the power of 5 million Americans wearing purple tomorrow in solidarity with kids that feel isolated, alone, tormented and abused."

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?
