I am so happy to share some great news about marriage equality, and it comes from right here in California.

Via Think Progress:

...59 percent of residents backing same-sex marriage and just 34 percent opposing it, a new Field survey finds. This represents “the largest margin of support for the issue in the three-plus decades the Field Poll has been asking the question” and shows a big increase for marriage since voters approved Proposition 8 in 2008. Significantly, support increased among all groups, including Protestants, Catholics, African Americans, Latinos and older Americans...

So if Prop 8 were to be voted on today, it would have a tough time passing.

Now check out this Moment of Happy video, "Grandparents for Marriage Equality" (H/t: Maddow Blog):

I put this piece up back in August. It is one of the many reasons I will miss Keith, and it is worth a re-post.

For my thoughts on his leaving, go here. It's gotten wonderful feedback and a much larger response than I ever expected, both here and on Twitter. Thank you for that.

And you can visit Keith's Facebook page here, where he the page's author wrote:

Added: I meant to include a note that Keith has said he himself doesn't have a FB page. The page is about him, not by him.

In the meantime:

This is one of Keith’s best Special Comments ever, if not THE best.

Thank you Keith, thank you, thank you:

This is one of Keith's best Special Comments ever, if not THE best.
