– A top official of the National Organization for Marriage now believes in civil marriage equality.
– Ah, Mississippi, where 46% of Republicans think interracial marriage should be illegal, while 40% say it should be legal.
– The government didn’t shut down – yay! Now there might be a big fight over raising the debt limit, but Nate Silver points out John Boehner doesn’t have a great hand to play. Defaulting on our debts would be even more catastrophic financially than the government shutting down, so hopefully we can not do the same wait-until-the-last-minute type of strategy and move on to other things. Apparently Obama’s working on a plan to reduce our debt that is hopefully less crazy than the Republican’s.
