One-Third down the rest to go

Yesterday, despite yet another futile, but anger-filled, challenge from the Right, the New Mexico Supreme Court declared it unconstitutional to deny same-sex couples marriage license.

Just over five years ago, that number was “zero“.

In fact, the tone of the debate has changed so much that the goal of the right-wing in this country is no longer defeating gay marriage, but just to protect those who make idotic statements about gay people.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
